AHECSW OHSU Experience 2014

 Monday, October 20, 2014

AHECSW accepted 21 students from Coos, Douglas, and Lane County that were interested in healthcare careers for their OHSU experience 2014. Students had the opportunity to visit the College of Osteopathic Medicine, OHSU, and National College of Natural Medicine. This is what some of our students had to say about their experience:

“I really enjoyed the radiation portion of our visit. I considered the occupation of a radiation oncologist after speaking with radiation therapy. I liked the fact that you get to interact with your patient for a long period of time.”

- Justin

“I loved all of it (National College of Natural Medicine)! In particular, I liked learning about sutures and the herb garden.”

- Amber

“I enjoyed learning about the history of the DO’s and the basis on which it was founded. The PA group, thank you for helping me discover what I want to do! Surgeons, thank you for the most interactive presentation!”

 - Sara

“This was an amazing trip, I learned so much and had so many new eye opening experiences, I will never forget this. Thanks tons to the presenters and the chaperones, you are all awesome and amazing people for doing things like this and taking time out of your lives to help us students. Bless you all!”

 - Kylee

We would like to thank all of the professionals that took time to talk to our students and provide additional support to them as they continue to explore healthcare as a profession. Congratulations to the students that were accepted into the program!
