    Academic support units

    Whether you have questions or are just curious about where you can go for academic support, the following units will be helpful for you: 

    Student organizations

    Students are involved in a number of student groups located across Oregon. Get involved and connected by seeking out your fellow students in these areas.

    Bridges Collaborative Care Clinic

    Student-run free clinics have a long-standing history of helping meet the health needs of underserved populations while also enriching students' professional education. With this in mind, students from Portland State University (PSU), OHSU, and Oregon State University (OSU) have joined forces with Transition Projects (TPI) to take student-run free clinics to a new level of interprofessional innovation by launching Bridges Collaborative Care Clinic (BCCC).
