    Clinical Rotation at OHSU

    Student RT (Former Employee)
    Portland, OR

    ProsI had the opportunity to see cardiopulmonary disease states I might have otherwise only read about. The staff was excellent to work with and readily shared their wealth of knowledge. Working in the CF clinic and NICU were highlights of my educational experience.

    ConsParking can be expensive. Not a big deal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would like to thank them for the experience. A longer rotation there would have been even better.
