Student Interest Groups

At OHSU, student interest groups provide extracurricular activities for students to participate in and build meaningful networks with others who have similar interests. These extracurricular activities are educational, intellectual, interdisciplinary, cultural and social in nature and help students develop leadership and work place skills, collaborative relationships with others, and a sense of one's personal identity. 

Student Interest Groups are asked to register with the University and registration runs from September 1st to October 1st annually. Groups that register either before or after that time will be processed in batches on a quarterly basis. If you're interested in renewing your group's registration or starting a new Student Interest Group, please review the forms below and submit your registration online.
