Interprofessional Education Course Schedule

Interprofessional education occurs when students from two or more professions learn about, from, and with each other to enhance collaboration and improve health outcomes. At least 1 credit of interprofessional education is required by all MPH degree programs.

Most courses with OHSU subject code IPE (Inter-Professional Education) or UNI (University Curriculum) satisfy the interprofessional education requirement. Other courses may also serve; consult your advisor.

Course Information

Dr. Needoba uses chemical and biological sensors deployed in the environment to characterize water quality and its determinants, with a focus on linkages between human activities, ecological processes, and human health. As part of the Ecosystem Monitoring Program supported by the Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership, the lab studies water quality and ecosystem characteristics of juvenile salmon habitat in the Columbia River estuary. Additional ongoing research addresses regional environmental health issues associated with harmful algal blooms, chemicals of emerging concern, and ocean acidification/hypoxia.
