OHSU Postdoctoral Association


The mission of the OHSU Postdoctoral Association (OPDA) is to enhance the academic, professional, and social experience for all postdoctoral scholars at OHSU. The OPDA fosters a postdoctoral community through scientific collaboration, networking opportunities, and career and professional development seminars.

The four fundamental aims of OPDA are to:

  1. Facilitate communication and collaboration among postdocs and between postdocs and faculty,
  2. Promote the education and exposure of postdoctoral fellows to the multitude of Ph.D. career prospects,
  3. Support the professional development of OHSU postdocs, and
  4. Foster the development of a social environment conducive towards an optimal research training experience.
