Interns soaking up Portland life!

Interns soaking up Portland life!

On Monday February 4th, the OHSU IM Interns were surprised with an annual tradition: INTERN SKIP DAY! With upper-levels covering all clinical duties, they were treated to a chief-led scavenger hunt and sponsored lunch out and about in the city they call home. Though the day was colder than anticipated (first day of snow!), they managed to soak up the sights and found a lot of time for team bonding!

How did they get on the ice??? also, we are no longer allowed near the Benson Hotel.

IMRESPDX would like to shine a special spotlight on Dr. Hayden Oldham, our VA QI Chief Resident this year. Time and time again he has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help out with a busy interview season, leading dinners, participating in interview days, and just generally making us feel glad that we work with people like him.

Feel free to get in touch with him if you have any questions about working for the VA, QI projects, hospital medicine, or just want to hang out with a great dude.

Thanks Dr. Oldham!
