Academic Program Review Share This OHSU Content

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

All programs are to continue their regular reviews as planned, however, every five years these internal reviews will be presented to the Academic Program Review Committee, which will determine if the program is meeting the institution's standards of academic quality and integrity.

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. The report can be be completed and submitted in one of two ways, either online using the link below, or as a Word document, also linked below.
