Academic Curriculum for 2013-2014

Important Announcement for Applicants for the 2014-2015 Cycle

In 2014, the OHSU PA Program will be moving to a new building, currently under construction, overlooking the Willamette River in Portland.  The Collaborative Life Sciences Building has been designed to enhance opportunities for students at OHSU, across all professions, to learn and work together.  There is much excitement about the potential the new building offers and currently the PA Program, along with the School of Medicine and other programs on campus, are considering curricular changes that will optimize the inter-professional benefits of the new building.

The OHSU PA Program website currently reflects the curriculum in place for the class which entered in June 2013.  Based on the overwhelming success of the program over the years, major changes in the curriculum are not anticipated but revisions are being considered and the website will be updated as those changes become more clearly defined.
