Kirsten Kuhn

I grew up in northwestern Wisconsin and attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison. There, I majored in Social Welfare and Environmental Studies, and I was also a member of our varsity rowing team. After graduation, I moved to the mountains of Colorado to ski, bike, and trail run to my heart’s content. Over several years as a part-time student and medical assistant, I completed the pre-requisites necessary to land a spot here at OHSU. I feel very lucky to be a part of this incredible academic community. I am very much looking forward to clinical rotations next year, and hope to work in orthopedics and sports medicine after graduation.
