The graduate program in the Department of Biomedical Engineering offers doctor of philosophy degrees in biomedical engineering specializing in:
- Biomedical optics
- Cardiovascular engineering
- Nanomedicine and nanobiotechnology
- Spatial systems biology
An essential aspect of the doctoral program is the individual research in close collaboration with members of the faculty. Research training begins in the first year of study with direct placement into a mentor’s laboratory. The diversity of faculty collaborations provides research opportunities in addition to those available at the Medical School, such as the Vollum Institute for Advanced Biomedical Research and Portland State University.
Biomedical Engineering is one of seven basic science departments / divisons in the OHSU School of Medicine, and provides a unique environment especially suited for the education of multidisciplinary biomedical engineers.
