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.

This course is designed to introduce graduate students to leadership and management, focusing on effective strategies for creating a productive work environment through techniques such as conflict resolution, building collaborative teams and leading change and improvement. Issues of measuring, managing and improving the quality of health care will also be addressed. Current national efforts in performance measures in public health (the quadruple aim) are discussed. Case studies taken from public health departments and other settings will be used to master problem solving skills, engage in quality improvement processes, and present findings to an audience using audiovisual technology.

Doctoral students register for the CPH 628 section.
