About Slater

Dr. Slater, who has worked as a cardiothoracic surgeon at OHSU for 23 years, received his medical degree from Eastern Virginia Medical School. At OHSU, Dr. Slater served as director of the cardiac surgery program and director of quality for the Knight Cardiovascular Institute.

Having participated in team sports from a young age, Dr. Slater likens the idea of teamwork to what happens in an operating room. He is passionate about motivating himself and fellow caregivers to play their roles well and stay at the top of their game, resulting in better outcomes for patients. When not performing surgery, Dr. Slater enjoys bicycle racing and spending time in the great outdoors.
