Our Students
"In addition to providing an engaging academic experience, the OHSU Graduate Program expanded my horizons within the field of dietetics via valuable experiences within and outside the classroom. The faculty provides assistance and one-on-one support, but also creates a challenging environment that is conducive to personal growth. What I take most from this program is the ability to think critically about emerging research and apply this to clinical practice. The OHSU Graduate Program was a wonderful experience!"

"The faculty and staff at OHSU are incredibly supportive and caring! The opportunity to spend time in the lab and learning the fundamental techniques in research has been invaluable as I have moved into my career. The program emphasizes and exposes you to new ideas, thoughts, programs, and encourages you to step "out of the box" in your traditional thinking. I use something I learned from the GPHN program nearly every day at work. This program is unique in the "value-added" opportunities it provides and I would highly recommend it!"

Recent Student Publications
"The OHSU Graduate Programs in Human Nutrition offered far more opportunities than I ever expected, from fellowships & traineeships, to elective courses, to involvement in the greater Portland community. In addition to the "added-value experiences" and the extremely attentive faculty & staff within the Program, the rest of the university provided additional opportunities that enhanced my GPHN experience. Taking courses with students in other healthcare graduate programs broadened my perspective in the fields of healthcare & research. As a premier research university, OHSU offers opportunities within the thesis research project far beyond data collection and writing, providing hands-on experiences with the Principal Investigator of the research and the research staff. The Program challenged me to be creative and independent, through coursework, the internship practicum, and now as a young professional in the field of dietetics."
