Caleb_VVCaleb Haley: Working in VirtuOHSU

For many who register with our program, applying to medical school is a major contributing factor to becoming a volunteer at OHSU. Caleb was no exception as his passion for medicine has only been fueled from his time spent volunteering with VirtuOHSU. In Caleb's one and a half years spent with VirtuOHSU he states how has been able to "network and build professional relationships with medical students, residents, and faculty" to gain many invaluable mentors.
