Academic Program Review

All of OHSU's degree and certificate programs are subject to periodic reviews of academic quality and effectiveness.  The reviews are based on OHSU's Academic Program Review policy, which was developed during Summer and Fall 2010.

Every five years academic degrees and certificate programs will complete and submit a program self-study to the Academic Program Review Committee, which determines if the program is meeting OHSU's standards of academic quality and effectiveness.

To facilitate the program review process, the Provost's Office created a series of documents to educate stakeholders about the purpose for the reviews and provide time-saving resources for those actively engaged in them.

Five-Year Academic Program Review Forms

In preparation for the Five-year Academic Program Review, programs will utilize the APR Form to complete the program self-study. The APR Form is a Word Document and programs are welcome to submit the report as a Word document or a PDF.

In addition to the APR Form, the Academic Program Review Committee requires the completion of two additional tables containing faculty data:

After the 5-Year Report is complete, please email the document to the Office of Academic Programs, Policy and Accreditation as an attachment and include all supplemental information, such as Forms I, II, and III. Please label all attachments clearly.

If you experience difficulty with any of the forms, or have any questions, please contact the Office of Academic Programs, Policy and Accreditation at  503-418-5281.

Academic Program Review Committee


Representatives appointed by the administration of each school and a representative from the OHSU Faculty Senate appointed by their Executive Committee, comprise the Academic Program Review Committee.


The Academic Program Review Committee meets as needed to conduct a review of program self-studies and meets once per term to discuss general report findings.
