Education at OHSU

PDS: New Educator Orientation

Professional Development Series

OHSU’s version of New Faculty Orientation is called the Professional Development Series (PDS).  The primary audience of the Professional Development Series (PDS) is new-to-OHSU or early career faculty, but we encourage post-docs, grad students staff, and educators at any stage to attend whichever sessions look helpful to them as well.  The PDS consists of six, three-hour workshops on these topics and runs every fall (Sept-Dec):

  • Classroom Pedagogy and Education Scholarship
  • Clinical Pedagogy and Scholarship
  • Promotion and Tenure
  • Research and Publishing
  • Strategies and Tools for Promoting Your Work
  • Professional Growth and Mentorship

For more information, registration instructions, and how to access recordings, please see Develop Professionally on O2.
