OHSU MD Program Application & Matriculation Policy for OHSU Graduate Studies Students

OHSU School of Medicine policy establishes that a student’s acceptance of admission to graduate status is regarded as a declaration of intent to complete a program of graduate study prior to matriculation to another OHSU School of Medicine educational program.

Based on this policy, the following rules apply to applicants who are enrolled in a graduate program at the Oregon Health & Science University and are applying to either the M.D., M.D./Ph.D. or M.D./M.P.H. Program:

  • An applicant enrolled in an OHSU Ph.D. program will be considered eligible for application to either the M.D. or M.D./M.P.H. Program, but will not be eligible to matriculate until he/she has completed the Ph.D. Program.
  • An applicant enrolled in the OHSU M.P.H. Program will be considered eligible for application to either the M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. Program, but will not be eligible to matriculate until he/she has completed the M.P.H. Program.
  •  An applicant enrolled in an OHSU graduate studies program will not be considered eligible for matriculation to the respective M.D. combined degree program. (Example: While enrolled in the OHSU M.P.H. Program, a student is not eligible for matriculation into the M.D./M.P.H. Combined Degree Program.)
  • An applicant enrolled in any other OHSU graduate studies program, not referred to above, will be considered eligible for application to either the M.D., M.D./Ph.D. or M.D./M.P.H. Program, but will not be eligible to matriculate until he/she has completed the respective graduate studies program. 
  • Under no circumstance will deferred admission to the M.D. Program be allowed in order to comply with this policy.

An exemption to the above policy must be approved by the Director of the appropriate OHSU graduate studies program and the Associate Dean for Graduate Studies.
