Student Academic Support Services


Looking for strategies to help with your learning?

Student Academic Support Services (SASS) is committed to helping all learners at OHSU reach their academic potential. We have three key offerings, which include:

  • One-on-one consultations with learners and residents
  • Workshops on study skills and strategies for students, at the request of faculty members or students
  • Access to the Sakai learning management system for asynchronous, self-directed learning support (which either learners or faculty can access)

Our aim is to help learners develop personalized tools and approaches to study more effectively and efficiently, decrease stress, improve memory, and motivation. Working with us, learners can explore:

  • Academic coaching and study skills
  • Executive functioning skills, motivation and goal setting
  • Memory techniques
  • Test taking skills and managing test anxiety
  • Getting the most out of reading and lecture
  • Time management
  • And more
