Two of Oregon’s leading universities have joined forces to train the next generation of public health leaders. We focus on community-engaged learning and scholarship that puts the student and researcher out in the world, in real communities. With our students, we work to find enduring and sustainable solutions to today’s public health problems, and are committed to educating students of all backgrounds who want to enter the public health field and improve lives in their communities.
Oregon Health & Science University is known internationally for groundbreaking and life-saving research in cancer and medicine. Portland State University is a national model for community engagement and academic innovation. Together, the two universities offer unmatched opportunity for students to learn in the classroom and in real-world settings.
Our faculty and students work to improve public health in communities throughout Oregon, and beyond. PSU and OHSU have an established network of local and regional partners, including clinics, governmental agencies and nonprofit agencies. This offers students a wealth of opportunity for internships, hands-on learning and contacts for future employment.
