The OHSU M.D./Ph.D. Program invites applications from individuals wishing to pursue careers as physician-scientists. Applicants should have a strong academic record, solid performance on the MCAT, prior research experience, outstanding letters of reference, and evidence of a firm commitment to a career in science and medicine. The Graduate Record Examination is not required.
Applicants also should have demonstrated leadership qualities through activities and interests that are outside of the laboratory and classroom, and have shown a clear commitment to medicine through volunteer activities. Although most individuals enter the M.D./Ph.D. program as first year students, applications will be considered from students currently in their first or second year at the OHSU School of Medicine.
The MD/MPH Combined Degree Program offered by the Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine provides an opportunity for entering medical students to obtain a professional degree in public health while pursuing a medical education. The Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine in the School of Medicine is a partner in a consortium with departments at Oregon State University and Portland State University to offer various areas of specialization within the field of public health. The epidemiology and biostatistics track is being offered at OHSU to outstanding first-year medical school applicants.
Admission into the combined degree program for entering medical students is designed for superior students who have special or unique prior experience or research in the public health area. Successful applicants must show evidence of potential for excellent performance in both the MD and MPH programs and a firm commitment and potential for a career in which the population-based clinical practice model would be particularly useful.
Each year, two to three students will be selected for the Oral/Maxillofacial surgery /M.D. Program and will enter into the second year of medical school. This selection will be made by the Admissions Committee based on the recommendation of the Director of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery/ M.D. Program. The requirements for students in this program are available through the Office of Education and Student Affairs.
