Just want to give some background information for those that got accepted into Ohsu and another school.
I'm a native Oregonian. Some things to consider is cost of living. It's definitely cheaper to rent here compared to Ucsf, but more expensive than Austin I suppose. Most likely you will need to take public transportation. Depending on where you live, if you are able to find an affordable apartment, that is, it will take you about an hour for public transportation. If you want to park on campus, it's 13/day.
It's nice to do clinical rotations at this university hospital. Most of the clinical rotations are done at the hospital. Mental health students may have clinical rotations at smaller clinics around Portland.
The majority of professors already have a PhD or DNP. I'm not a fan of professors that teach, have a full time clinic job and are pursuing their decorates at the same time.
All of the programs take the first few classes together...Health Assessment and Pharmacology to name a couple. Anyhow. Hope this info helps some of you decide which program you would like to do.
