Graduate and Professional Student Orientation

As a new student in the College of Dental Medicine, College of Pharmacy, and Westbrook College of Health Professions, you will participate in a formal orientation program on campus, offered at the start of the academic year. 

This is a time to get your pre-enrollment tasks out of the way and to participate in a variety of programs and discussions to become acquainted with your colleagues, campus culture, the University, and the greater Portland community.
