Past Publications & Conference Presentations

Display of Multiple Print Publications

We take such pride in our residents' accomplishments in scholarship, and this includes publications and poster/oral conference presentations. Our residents present at multiple regional and national conferences this year, as well as events hosted within the OHSU community, as well as publish in dozens of different journals annually.  

We also highlight all resident scholarship accomplishments on our Twitter account with the hashtag #OHSUscholarship!
