School of Medicine Alumni Council

A council of alumni volunteers leads association activities and represents the voice of alumni to the OHSU School of Medicine

Greetings from the School of Medicine Alumni Association,

It is my pleasure to be the president of the association. We currently have 20,770 alumni and, this fall welcomed 150 new medical students who will one day become alumni. This is the most diverse class we have had at the OHSU School of Medicine. Of the 150 medical students who started this fall:

  • 88% are Oregonians or of Oregon heritage
  • 69% identify as female
  • 36% come from a disadvantaged background
  • 33% come from racial or ethnic backgrounds other than white
  • 25% come from rural backgrounds
  • 23% come from a racial or ethnic group underrepresented in medicine
  • Two have completed military service

The association is actively discussing ways to make the alumni connection more relevant and we would love to hear your thoughts about how to accomplish this. As alumni, there are multiple ways to interact with the association and with our students.

Engage with students at the Medical Specialty Speed Networking event. This is an opportunity for physicians to talk to students about their specialties and give them insight into practice.

Volunteer for the eHost program and connect with current M.D. students navigating the residency application process.

Serve as an M.D. Admissions Interview Rater to help evaluate the many qualified candidates who apply to OHSU.

Attend Timely Topics, a monthly educational webinar tackling current issues that impact many people in the health profession.

Participate in the association’s workgroups or attend the Annual Holiday Reception, where we can reconnect with fellow alumni.

Alumni can also choose to sponsor a white coat for our new M.D. students. And, of course, there is always the option of donating to the School of Medicine to help support these and other programs.
