This week, our program released the SIXTH edition of the OHSU Internal Medicine Residency Program's Quarterly Scholarship Newsletter. As usual, our residents' hard work was rewarded with publications in a multitude of high-impact journals.

The newsletter is part of ongoing efforts by Dr. Avital O'Glasser, one of our assistant program directors, along with the SPeAR (Scholarship Peer Advice and Resources Group) to solidify our scholarship infrastructure. Reach out to Avi or the SPeAR group if you have any questions about getting more involved in research!
