Merle Pennington, M.D. Lectures in Family Medicine

This is a clinical topic-based single day conference typically held in the early fall in Portland. The morning session consists of several presentations interspersed with time for questions. Morning lectures are followed by a keynote Pennington Lecture, a clinically relevant piece pertinent to provision of medical care or practice transformation. All lectures are presented by clinicians with extensive experience in their topic. The day is rounded off by afternoon workshops with clinical application and resident poster presentations.

This conference is named in honor of Merle Pennington MD, a founder of the OHSU Department of Family Medicine and mentor to many physicians, who formally joined the faculty in 1977.
