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. Saurabh Thosar, has a secondary faculty appointment in the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health as an Assistant Professor in the Environmental Systems & Human Health program. In this SPH role his work includes teaching courses, mentoring students, and collaborating on research with primary faculty members.

His time spent in clinical practice of Occupational Therapy and Exercise Physiology (cardiac rehabilitation) gave him the opportunity to employ daily innovations, e.g. fabrication of splints in a different way, making subtle changes to exercise prescriptions of patients who have undergone bypass surgery, progression of treatment for stroke patients to increase their independence in daily life, and many other daily modifications individualized to each patient, that led to significant improvements in the lives of patients, and form the driving force behind much of what he wanted to achieve professionally.

Professor Thosar has studied the effects of sedentary behavior on cardiovascular function and the role of vascular function on morning risk for heart attacks. The current work in Professor Thosar’s laboratory focusses on studying the interactions between physical inactivity, sleep, circadian rhythms and cardiovascular risk.

In addition to his work as a faculty member in SPH, Dr. Thosar is an Assistant Professor in the OHSU Oregon Institute of Occupational Health, School of Nursing, and School of Medicine.
