OHSU School of Medicine Class of 2013
I chose the OHSU School of Medicine because I found that my passion is for delivery of care to the underserved. OHSU is one of the few medical schools in the country that places this value at the top of its agenda.
The school is doing incredible things for Oregon, through its leadership in Primary Care and Family Medicine, and through curricula such as the Oregon Rural Scholars Program.
I hope someday to translate my experiences here into opportunities to work on the ground level with efforts in Public Health, Global Health and Evidenced-based Medicine, and perhaps to teach as well.
Whether it’s scholarships for deserving students, or support for the innovative programs that have come to define our excellence, many components of our School simply would not exist without the annual generosity of our alumni and our community and I'm thankful for that support.
