Our Faculty

More than 150 faculty members work within the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health. They have a wide range of expertise, from monitoring and assessing health risks and opportunities in populations, to helping build health-supporting social environments through policy, advocacy, and programs. They are educators, advisors, researchers, practitioners and community leaders. They come from backgrounds in quantitative, behavioral, environmental and social sciences, policy and government, exercise and health sciences and anthropology, among many other areas. They all work in collaboration with each other and with community partners, and are especially focused on the training and education of future leaders and practitioners in the public health fields.


Field Experience – ESHH 509

The objective of the MPH program is to develop environmental health leaders who can synthesize the technical, environmental, economic, health, and social issues involved in the design and operation of complex environmental health systems, and organizations. The purpose of the public health practicum is to provide students with a work-related experience designed to integrate environmental health theory and practice in an applied setting under supervision. Students will develop and demonstrate their skill at synthesis through participation in the public health practicum. At the end of the practicum students will present their projects in an open forum accessible by community members. ESHH 509 may be taken as two 3-credit courses during subsequent terms.
