Looking further for information on veterans and medical education in Portland in the 1950s, I was flipping through the photographs categorized as "Military Science: Miscellaneous" when I came across this great image. The caption on the back reads (in part):
One of the first ROTC groups to receive training in Army General Hospitals, men from the University of Oregon Medical School Portland, Oregon are currently on a six weeks training period at Madigan General Hospital, Tacoma, Washington. ... Monday, 8 Aug. 1949The medical trainees were themselves all veterans of the war which had just ended.
