Our program accepts a new cohort every other year. We will be accepting applications for our next cohort in September of 2024. Those students will begin classes during Fall of 2025.

We are planning for our program to be in-person, but will make necessary adjustments depending on the state of the global pandemic, and directions from the Oregon Health Authority and the University of Oregon.
