Education at OHSU

Education Scholarship

education scholarship header

Educational Improvement and Innovation is invested in helping educators develop as education researchers within the academic health center context. Conducting education research is valuable because it promotes more scholarly approaches to teaching and learning and it allows us to investigate and improve our learning environments and practices as a university.  In addition, individual faculty can focus their careers (and thus their promotion efforts) on disseminating education-related projects, innovation, and research.

Key Scholarship Support Resources

OHSU’s Education Scholars Program, run by the School of Medicine, a one-year certificate program designed to prepare education leaders to be successful scholars.  Free for SOM faculty, consider applying for an Educator Success Grant if you are not in the School of Medicine.
