Mercy in Roseburg Becomes Teaching Affiliate for Medical Students


Mercy Medical Center, Roseburg, Ore., has established a Graduate Medical Education Program in partnership with Western University/College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific (WU/COMP). The medical student clerkship program, to begin in June 2005, will enable Mercy physicians to assist in training new physicians. As adjunct faculty members of WU/COMP, Mercy’s medical staff will mentor third- and fourth-year medical students during their core clinical clerkships. The clerkships will offer the students inpatient, outpatient and clinic-based learning opportunities. For more information, contact Kathleen Nickel of Mercy at kathleennickel@chiwest.com.
