Information for New Students
Interdisciplinary Case Conferences (ICC)
As a student in the College of Health Professions (CHP), you will have many opportunities to network with healthcare leaders from organizations across the state and region. You will participate in many events and lectures that will strengthen your knowledge of healthcare and its many facets. You will join other CHP students (those from the School of Dental Health Science, School of Physical Therapy, School of Occupational Therapy, School of Pharmacy, School of Physician Assistant Studies, and the School of Professional Psychology) at the six annual Interdisciplinary Case Conferences where you will work together in teams to solve the different cases presented by CHP faculty. Please take full advantage of these dynamic learning opportunities during your time in the MHA program.
Disability and Accommodation
The MHA program supports the provision of reasonable accommodations that allow students with disabilities to participate in the program. Any student who feels that he or she may need an accommodation should contact the Learning Support Services office at 503-352-2107 to discuss specific needs.
Tobacco Free Campus
Pacific University’s College of Health Professions is further demonstrating its commitment to healthcare and its community by instituting a tobacco-free policy for its Health Professions Campus. Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center, which operates a clinic on the Health Professions Campus, is partnering with Pacific in the creation, implementation and enforcement of this policy.
The new policy, prohibiting the use of all tobacco products in or around Pacific University’s Hillsboro campus, went into effect May 1, 2009. The policy applies to students, Pacific University and Virginia Garcia employees, visitors, patients and patient family members.
