School of Public Health Initiative

OHSU PSU School of Public Health

Progressing toward an OHSU/PSU School of Public Health

Oregon Health & Science University and Portland State University are working together to collaboratively establish a School of Public Health that builds on the success of the Oregon Master of Public Health (OMPH) program. By leveraging the unique and shared strengths of both universities, we will be poised to meet the evolving public health needs of Oregon and beyond.

Over the next several months, we will be working to pursue "school" accreditation from the Council on Education in Public Health (CEPH). Although many details of this collaboration are still underway, we’ve created this page to share information and answer questions about our ongoing progress toward in OHSU/PSU School of Public Health.

Why a School of Public Health?

The OHSU/PSU School of Public Health builds upon our 20-year track record of collaboration in public health programming and takes our missions of teaching, research, and service to the next level. The Oregon Master of Public Health program has been incredibly successful and is now the longest running collaborative accredited M.P.H. program in the country. School accreditation status will allow for seamless operation and will facilitate student access to resources and opportunities across institutional lines.
