2011 Dinner at Dr. Harken’s Home!

Every year Dr. Harken and his wife graciously hosts the members of the OREX group. It is a wonderful occasion for the students to not only get a chance to interact with Dr. Harken but with some of the members of the surgical team, including medical students, residents and attendings. This is truly one of the highlights of the year for OREX members!

2009 Dinner at Dr. Harken’s Home!

Yestday, we started a new OREX tradition — dinner at Dr. Harken’s home in the spring! It was a perfect day to have appetizers on their porch, talk to a surgical resident and UCSF medical students, and the Chief of Surgery at the UCSF-East Bay Department of Surgery himself, Dr. Harken.

Mrs. Harken made a wonderful salmon dinner with home-made strawberry cheesecake for dessert and we ended the night by chatting in the living room from everything to the surgeon’s life, to Guitar Hero!
