Dr. Roger Alberty earned his medical degree from the University of Kansas School of Medicine in 1968. He arrived in Portland later that year for an internship at Good Samaritan Hospital. He went on to complete a residency in general surgery and a fellowship in peripheral vascular surgery at St. Vincent Hospital. He has been on the faculty at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center since that time, serving as chief of surgery from 1985-1986 and 1996-2007. In 2008, the Portland Clinic named their new surgical outpatient center in Tigard after Alberty, in honor of his thirty-year tenure with the clinic and his long service to the medical community.

The lecture is free and open to the public. If you have a disability and need an accommodation to attend or participate in this event please contact us at 503-418-2287 at least five business days prior to the event.
