The Epidemiology and Biostatistics MPH Program uses a group advising format. Each term all students will be invited to an advising session where faculty and student peer advisors will present information on courses, internships, and thesis requirements. In these sessions we will break into small groups to give more individualized advice.
MD/MPH students also receive peer advising through the MD/MPH Student Council and the bi-annual Med Net Meeting.
By the end of the first year the student should have selected a Thesis Mentor from a member of OHSU's Graduate Faculty. After consulting with the selected faculty member and getting approval, the student and Thesis Mentor need to fill out the form found on the Graduate Studies web page called "Mentor/Advisor Assignment - Masters Programs," have it signed by the Thesis Mentor, and submit it to the Education Office (CB 663B).A list of faculty appointed by the Department Public Health and Preventive Medicine and approved by the OHSU Graduate Council as Graduate Advisors who can serve as Thesis Mentors for MPH students is found on the MPH Skybridge, an online resource restricted to matriculated students; however, a listing of all OHSU Graduate Faculty can be found on the Graduate Studies website.
