Requirements for Admission

Minimum OHSU School of Medicine requirements for admission to a Graduate Program:

  • A baccalaureate degree, or equivalent, from an accredited U.S. academic institution - or equivalent foreign institution. Official transcripts documenting coursework completed, grades received and degrees awarded from all universities attended are required.
    • Degrees from Foreign Institutions - OHSU strongly encourages all applicants with foreign degrees to obtain a World Education Service International Credential Advantage Package (WES ICAP) course-by-course credential evaluation. The WES ICAP credential evaluation differs from a regular WES evaluation in that it includes verified transcripts; no official foreign transcript needs to be sent to OHSU in addition to the evaluation if the WES ICAP is submitted. Please consult WES's website for instructions www.wes.org; applicants are responsible for the full cost of this service. Please contact the program to see if the WES ICAP is required during the application process.
  • Evidence of thorough training and background in the quantitative sciences including any specific courses required by the Graduate Program of application 
  • A cumulative grade-point average of all undergraduate courses of at least 3.0 (based on a letter grade system of A-4 points, B-3 points, C-2 points, D-1 point, F-0 points), or its equivalent in other grading systems
  • Graduate Record Examination (GRE) - Institution code: 4865
    • There are no official minimum GRE scores required for admission
  • All foreign applicants for whom English is not a native language must take the one of the following:
    Test for English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)
    Institutional code: 4865
    English Language Testing System (IELTS)
  • Individual programs may have additional requirements - please check directly with the program.
