Dear OHSU School of Medicine Alumni:

It is that time of year again –fourth year medical students from OHSU are beginning the process of applying to residencies.

In anticipation of the process of interviewing, travelling around the country, and putting our best foot forward, we are ready for the excitement that the residency interview season is sure to bring. 

One of the unique aspects of OHSU and its Alumni community is a commitment to help students in their path to finding that perfect residency. The School of Medicine Alumni Association's Alumni Resource Network - or "ARN" program - connects OHSU alumni with members of the School of Medicine Class of 2019 as they embark on the interview trail.

Alumni are a welcome resource for students by taking the time for a phone call, or meeting for coffee or a meal with the student looking into residency programs. Alumni typically provide tips on navigation of their home city and clue us in to the best places to grab coffee or dinner while visiting. These small gestures help us make the best of our travels and provide a unique perspective. We are extremely grateful for your willingness to help us navigate some of our interview cities. If you would like to participate in this program, we would love to hear from you! Please contact the Alumni Association at or for questions, call Julie Mikulic at (503) 220-8324.

From the Class of 2019, we thank you for your consideration and look forward to talking with and potentially meeting some of you!

Alumni Resource Network Student Request

If you would like to use the Alumni Resource Network, please email us with a request to receive a current list of cities in which alumni are available. 

We ask that you connect with hosts to determine the extent to which they are able to assist during the time period you expect to visit, and make arrangements with them to meet up in the host city if appropriate. 

After you return from your interview, please send a thank you to the alumnus/a who helped or hosted you, and let us know how it went.
