Live, Learn, & Thrive in Portland

Welcome to Oregon’s only urban school of public health, a partnership of two of the state’s leading universities. Oregon Health & Science University is perched on a hill above the city with panoramic views of Portland and the mountains beyond. Portland State University is in the urban heart of downtown. The two campuses are only a short ride apart by Portland Streetcar or by bike. 

But our real campus is outside of the classroom – it’s in the city, the state, and the world. With our focus on community-engaged learning and scholarship, the student and researcher is in the center of an established network of local and regional partners, including clinics and governmental and nonprofit agencies. All with opportunities for internships, hands-on learning, and contacts for future employment. 

We’re a center for innovation, collaboration, and sustainability, located in a state that is known as a national pioneer in public health – ideal conditions if you’re looking to make a world of difference.
