Other Healthcare Professional Programs
Other healthcare professional programs at OHSU encompasses a range of undergraduate and graduate programs offered through the OHSU School of Medicine and in collaboration with the Oregon Institute of Technology.
Students have diverse career goals, but a single purpose -- caring for people. The university's unique resources strengthen the healthcare professional education just as the healthcare programs strengthen the university.
Study occurs under the guidance of faculty members who are committed to student learning and to providing quality health care.
Graduate Programs in Human Nutrition
Graduates of the Oregon Health & Science University Dietetic Internship and Masters in Clinical Nutrition Program enter the field of dietetics and nutrition from a variety of backgrounds, with diverse interests, and with a passion to serve.
Physician Assistant Education
Physician Assistants (PAs) are highly trained members of the health care team who practice medicine with the supervision of licensed physicians, providing patients with a wide range of services that would otherwise be performed by physicians.
Graduate Program in Medical Physics
Physicists are highly-trained technical members of clinical teams within
Radiation Medicine, Diagnostic Imaging, or Nuclear Medicine. Medical
Physics applies aspects of physics to medicine for the purpose of diagnosing
and curing disease. The American Board of Radiology board certifies
Medical Physicists after completion of a CAMPEP*-accredited graduate program
(such as ours here at OHSU), and subsequent completion of a two year
CAMPEP-accredited residency, (similar to physician education with separate
didactic and clinical elements required to complete training). *Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education
