Spend a week at Oregon Health & Science University exploring medical careers. Explore what it’s like to work as a physician, nurse, pediatrician or biomedical researcher. This action-packed week led by a wide variety of medical professionals includes presentations and hands-on workshops such as how to take vital signs, suture and conduct physical exams. Meet with a panel of medical school students and ask questions about careers in medicine and how to successfully apply to medical school.
Workshops and tours are subject to change due to the real-world environment of a busy hospital, but to date students this week will have the opportunity to meet with professionals from the Portland Alcohol Research Center, Oregon National Primate Research Center, OHSU Rehabilitation Services, National University of Natural Medicine, an OB/GYN with Global Health Intiative, OHSU Sleep Center and the Emergency Department.
