Alia Breon, MD

Medical School: OHSU
Undergraduate: University of Washington

  • Hometown: Duvall, WA
  • Medical School: OHSU
  • Outside Interests: traveling, running on the trails near my house, skiing, cuddling my baby
  • Favorite Job before residency: Working as a lifeguard on Lake Washington in the summer
  • Why I picked OHSU: As an OHSU student I knew that I wanted to remain at OHSU for residency. I was impressed by the academic strength of the program and also the camaraderie of the residents and faculty. I also knew that Portland is an amazing place to live. It has a lively downtown area but you can be out of the city in a matter of minutes. The Colombia River Gorge has beautiful hikes and the beach and the mountains are both within 90 minutes. It's a great place to enjoy life during residency.

    As I approach my 3rd year of residency, I have increased appreciation of some of the subtler aspects of the program. OHSU is one of the two trauma centers in the state and a huge referral center for the area - so patients are sent to us from all over Oregon and parts of northern California and southern Washington. Our patient population is diverse and we see a lot of sick patients. We work most of our shifts at OHSU (this is our home) but we also get to go out to a bunch of community sites (all within Portland and easy to get to). This exposes us to a variety of different practice environments and patient populations and will be helpful as I plan for life after residency. I also appreciate that OHSU has attracted experienced and dedicated faculty members in all aspects of Emergency Medicine (education, toxicology, ultrasound, research, international medicine, EMS, health policy...) and everyone is passionate about resident education. I feel very fortunate to be an OHSU resident, I love my job and the people I work with.
