First up, we have Dr. Cat Murphree's lecture at the 26th annual Internal Medicine Review at the Sentinel Hotel in Downtown Portland. This annual event brings together physicians, NPs, PAs, and other providers from around the metro area and provides them with a cutting-edge review on Internal Medicine topics. This year, she along with Dr. Joe Shatzel delivered a great overview on iron metabolism, iron deficiency anemia, and hemochromatosis.

Give Dr. Murphree a hand!

On Tuesday evening, residents and faculty attended our annual scholarship mixer, aimed towards strengthening research connections between the residency program and potential research mentors who might be able to guide residents towards the next step in their career.

Hosted by the newly formed SPeAR group (Scholarship. Peer-Advice and Resources), this event will hopefully allow for more “face time” between residents and potential mentors, and allow residents to see what a variety of different people are working on on our shared hilltop.

If you are a mentor and were unable to make this event, but are interested in working with a resident, please send an email to imscholarship@ohsu.edu.

If you are a resident and similarly unable to make it, contact the chiefs or the SPeAR group as well.

WEEK OF THE WINS!!!!!!!!!! Our OHSU IM Final Four....

Well this was a week for the history books here at IMRESPDX.COM, the premier blog for IM Residency Fans in the Pacific Northwest. Instead of choosing one Win this week outright, since we had SO MANY options to choose from, and to celebrate the fact that it is MARCH, we decided to go with a FINAL FOUR format before revealing the ultimate recipient of this weekly honor.
