WIN OF THE WEEK: NEW INTERNS!!!!

After a long and grueling fun-filled orientation process, the 2018-2019 Internal Medicine intern class has acclimated to Portland via the time-honored traditions of visiting Ikea a bunch of times, getting lost in the Gorge, and enjoying a BBQ thrown in their honor by the outgoing IM Intern class!

They start in the hospitals this Sunday, July 1. They're going to be GREAT and EVERYONE is going to be nice to them.

Please help us welcome the new interns to OHSU. We are excited to work with you!
