Welcome to the OHSU Physician Assistant Program Alumni and friends web page. From our first graduate in 1997 through our 500th (and beyond) in 2015, we would like you all to come back often to revisit and reconnect.  Check out how to order transcripts, make a gift to our new endowment fund or find out more information on becoming a preceptor to the program. Stay in touch, we would love to hear from you. 

Get Involved

There are a number of ways that PAs can support the program.

  • Serve as a mentor for first year PA students or a preceptor for a clinical year student.
  • Serve as a member on one of the PA Program committees.
  • Provide lectures to first year students.
  • Serve as a small group facilitator.
  • Teach first year students physical examination techniques in the classroom or physical examination lab sessions.
  • Teach clinical techniques and procedures in the Applied Clinical Skills course and other hands-on sessions.
  • Proctor clinical examinations.
  • Facilitating sessions where the students practice the male genitourinary or female pelvic examination.
