Education at OHSU

Academic Program Review

Academic Program Review (APR) is the process by which all of OHSU degree and certificate programs are reviewed for academic quality and effectiveness. The reviews are conducted by the APR Committee in accordance with OHSU Policy 02-50-005, Academic Program Review Policy. 

Every five years, academic degree and certificate programs are required to complete and submit a program self-study to the APR Committee. The APR Committee is comprised of a minimum of nine faculty members with representation from each school at OHSU. APR Committee members are nominated by their school to a three-year term, and are confirmed by the OHSU Faculty Senate.  

To facilitate the program review process, the Office of the Provost has created a series of documents (all included in the "Academic Program Review Handbook & Guidelines 2022-23")  to educate stakeholders about review process and provide time-saving resources. 

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. 

This list is intended to assist programs in developing their self-study documents but it is not considered comprehensive. We encourage programs to use information from these and other resources beyond what is provided in this list. 

After the Program Self-Study  is complete, please email the document to Ryan Patterson (she/her) (Provost's Office) as an attachment and include all supplemental information, such as Forms I and II. Please label all attachments clearly.
