Environmental and Occupational Health Minor

Looking for a minor that clearly supports your major and provides you an accelerated path to a Masters of Public Health? You should consider the Environmental and Occupational Health (EOH) Program. The minor focuses on the impact of environmental and occupational hazards on human health, and it’s also available over Ecampus. The Accelerated Masters Program allows current OSU undergraduates with the EOH minor in Public Health to take graduate classes, apply those credits to minor requirements, and also transfer them to the MPH EOH graduate program at OSU. For more information, be sure to check the website, or contact Laurel Kincl if you have any questions.

Institute of Health Improvement Club

The IHI Open School Chapter here at OSU is a student-led club focused on advancing the safety and quality of care that is delivered in all healthcare settings around the world. As a club, they are dedicated to learning about the science of improvement and how to apply those principles to a real-life problem. The club’s mission is to provide members with an opportunity to engage in these principles so they can carry them into their careers. This is achieved through open discussions on healthcare, case studies, and guest speakers. This upcoming fall term there will be weekly meetings over Zoom open to anyone interested. If you are interested, be sure to email their President or Larry Gilley and get added to their Canvas page. In addition, be sure to check out their Facebook and Instagram!


SHE/SHA, or more formally known as the Society of Healthcare Executives and Society of Healthcare Administrators, is another great student-led club at OSU. The club is designed for people who are interested in becoming leaders in the healthcare world, and are hoping to develop their skills and expand their network.. Each meeting is dedicated to topics in leadership and discussion of current issues that face healthcare leaders. The club invites local leaders from various healthcare disciplines to speak on their path to leadership. Although it’s geared towards the healthcare world, the club is open to all majors and people. They will be hosting weekly Zoom meetings, so be sure to send them an email and get on their email list to get more information!

OSU Healthy Aging Club

Students from all disciplines are encouraged to attend OSU Healthy Aging Club (OSUHAC) meetings. This unique club offers students a chance to learn about careers in aging, interact with elders in the community, and gain experience for graduate school, professional programs, or work beyond college. Meetings will be held bi-monthly during Fall, Winter, and Spring terms. Be sure to contact their club President or their Faculty Advisor Carolyn Aldwin with any questions.

Minority Association of Pre-Med Students

The Minority Association of Pre-Med Students (MAPS) is a club that strives to increase the representation and matriculation of underrepresented minority students into medical school by fostering a collaborative environment among pre-med students and offering professional and educational opportunities for members. This is ultimately to address the needs of underserved communities and increase the number of clinically excellent, culturally competent, and socially conscious physicians of tomorrow. All are welcome who are passionate about diversity in medicine. Be sure to check out their Instagram, and send them an email if you’re interested in joining.

Youth Coaching Opportunity

Do you love sports?  Did you play them as a kid and learn to love them?  If you did, you probably had a great coach who taught you and developed your love of the sport and your skills.  Now it is your turn to share your knowledge of the sport(s) you love!  Corvallis Parks & Recreation offers programs in youth football, soccer, and volleyball in the Fall, and basketball and lacrosse programs in the Winter and Spring, and is in need of youth coaches.  If interested, contact Robert Thornberg at the P&R offices or call 541-754-1706.  In your response please indicate which sport(s) you want to coach.  No previous experience necessary, all you need is the desire to coach and general knowledge of the sport you want to coach.  Fall programs begin in just two weeks so don’t delay!
