It is a strong unit, essential to the success of the medical school and integrated health system. The Division's 14 pediatric cardiologists have active research programs in congenital heart disease, specifically the fields of echocardiography, genetics, and childhood dyslipidemia.

Looking ahead, OHSU is committed to solidifying the Division's preeminent status as a provider of choice in the region as well as enhancing the research activity within the Division.

Since 2005, the University's operating budget doubled to $2.4 billion, research award dollars grew by $100 million to $376 million, and philanthropic gifts increased more than five fold to $300 million. The University's physical growth can be seen in a new collaborative life sciences building, an upcoming School of Public Health, and a rural health-focused campus, as well as construction of three buildings to be completed in 2018 including the Knight Cancer Institute research building, Center for Health & Healing South, and the Rood Family Pavilion.

Reporting to the Chair of Pediatrics, the Head leads all the Division's missions and sets its overarching strategy. Additionally, they serve as a key leader in the pediatric and cardiac communities at OHSU.
