HIP Course Schedule

Academic year 2022-2023: Starting in Summer 2022, HIP will be transitioning more permanently to a hybrid program. This means that the majority of HIP courses will continue to be offered online, with a few in-person sessions scheduled as a component of certain courses. Courses are listed as either: hybrid (primarily online with a few in-person sessions), online synchronous (no in-person sessions), or online asynchronous. For hybrid courses, the dates of the in-person sessions will be announced prior to the start of the term, and these sessions will be held during the normal class hours (4:30-6:30 for most HIP courses) on the OHSU Marquam Hill or South Waterfront campuses (rooms TBA).
