Medical Directors Appointed
Announcing our new co-medical directors,
Dr. Brian Park and Dr. Christopher Terndrup!
“Brian is a native Minnesotan who studied psychology and film in college. He stumbled backwards into a career in healthcare in New York City, where he worked as a care coordinator for a program for teenagers with Type 2 diabetes. Since then, he has been passionate about learning how healthcare and public health can come together to address social needs and structural inequities. Today, he practices at the OHSU Richmond Clinic. He oversees a community organizing program where patients, healthcare providers/staff, and community partners come together to co-create solutions for health equity issues. He also oversees a program to develop relational change-agents in healthcare and public health.”
“Christopher was a high school math whiz, and studied Spanish language in college. He focused his energy in medical school and residency on LGBTQ populations and Latino healthcare. He taught throughout his life, from math tutoring to MCAT classes and now bedside clinical teaching for medical students and residents. He has been at OHSU since 2016, practicing primary care and hospital medicine. He enjoys teaching across contexts, working with both medical students and residents. He is the Quality Lead for his clinic, and the Assistant Program Director for Ambulatory Medicine for the IM program.”
