New opportunities for graduate studies in Health Promotion and Health Behavior at Oregon State University

Oct 13,2018 | Consortium_staff Announcements

The Health Promotion and Health Behavior program at Oregon State University offers new and exciting opportunities for graduate studies, as part of Oregon’s first accredited College of Public Health and Human Sciences. Our faculty and graduate programs are excellent, and often integrated with other programs in the School of Social and Behavioral Health Sciences such as human development and family sciences, and health management and policy. Our collective research portfolio spans social, cultural, and healthcare factors contributing to health disparities; social determinants of health; sexual and reproductive health; HIV/STI prevention; tobacco prevention and cessation; nutrition, physical activity; bone and body composition; cancer screening and survivorship. We conduct basic (etiology) research, intervention research, and research on the translation of public health programs to real world settings (implementation science). We have excellent opportunities for doctoral students and a strong history of funding students. Annual funding contracts have historically been renewed for at least two additional years for students making timely academic progress. Most students are funded through teaching or graduate research assistantships, which include tuition remission and a stipend. Recent graduates have gone on to prestigious post-doctoral positions, tenure-track faculty positions, and roles in industry and departments of public health. We would be delighted to hear from students who are considering pursuing doctoral level graduate work in public health.
