Dr. Orin Hansen

On May 26, 2017, the University of Washington School of Medicine held its Physician's Oath and Hooding Ceremony. Receiving his Doctorate in Family Medicine was Orin Michael Hansen, a 2008 CCHS graduate.

The day was filled with ceremonies and celebrations. The morning began with the 24th Annual Blanket Ceremony. The ceremony honored seven graduates being Indian Health Pathway Certified with a blanket individually selected for them based on the tribes where they spent their rotations.

The next ceremony of the day was the graduation of the TRUST (Targeted Rural & Under-Served Tracts) students of MT, ID, and WA. These students all spent time in a rural hospital during their rotations. The hope of their mentors is that they will return to practice medicine in a rural area.

The final ceremony of the day was the Physician's Oath & Hooding Ceremony. Students enrolled in the WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, & Idaho) program took their final walk to change their names forever.

Dr. Orin Hansen will be doing his Family Medicine Residency in Ventura, CA.
