House Officers' Association
The House Officers' Association (HOA) was formed to foster communication between house officers and administration at OHSU and the Portland VA. The association also provides a means by which house officers can actively participate in the formation and change of policy that affects patient care, as well as quality of benefits provided to house officers. All OHSU residents and fellows are invited to join the association and attend HOA meetings. If you have any questions or have ideas or suggestions for improving our residency program, please contact the HOA
Secretary: Elliza Chen
House Officer's Association Meetings are held on the Third Wednesday of the month, every other month in room HRC 11D03. Attendance is open to all house officers and fellows. Dinner is provided.
