First Year Curriculum

The first year curriculum is flexible and depends on the student's undergraduate background. The following represents a sample first-year curriculum. Each student will work with her or his advisor to determine the best course of study.

Students are expected to take all of the NGP Core Courses and several additional required courses, as well as four other additional electives. Electives can be taken after the first year and include the Conjoint series of classes, which form the core curriculum in the other major graduate program at OHSU (the PMCB program).


(*) Core courses (required; grade of B or better required)
