2011-2012 OREX Orientation Meeting

Say hello to the 2011-2012 OREX volunteers!

We’re very excited to announce that OREX has turned 4 this year!  In celebration of OREX’s continued success as one of the few programs in the country that exposes pre-health professionals to surgeries in progress, we are pleased to announce that OREX is growing.  This year, OREX volunteers are welcomed to attend UCSF-East Bay Surgery’s Grand Rounds and shadow the orthopedic clinic on Tues and Thurs in addition to surgery observation.
