Program Resources & Forms

OHSU Resources


Financial Support

  • Ph.D. students in PBMS who are offered a stipend upon admission are considered to be a part of our Graduate Researchers United (GRU) Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). The current 2023-2024 stipend is $37,593.00. In addition to the annual stipend, we cover 100% of tuition and university fees, full health, vision, and dental benefits, and access to the March Wellness Fitness Center for our students. 
  • Center for Diversity & Inclusion (CDI)
    • Serves employees and students by striving to create a community of inclusion, where students from historically underrepresented populations can thrive. CDI works on a high level with individual programs and departments but also works directly with students via recruiting fairs and various diverse student interest groups.
  • Student Access
    • As part of OHSU's commitment to diversity, the Office for Student Access (OSA) is committed to providing equal access and reasonable accommodation for qualified students. Student Access also provides resources for general academic support, including learning styles, study strategies, and time management. Students using this service are encouraged to contact the OSA as soon as possible, as accommodations can take time to implement and cannot be applied retroactively.
