Port Angeles was a lumber mill town, lots of character and charm. It is now a vital link from the North and upper west side of the Olympic mountain range, serving communities on the Washington coast line and the towns that surround Port Angeles to the East. It is located between the Strait of Juan De Fuca to the north and the foothills of the Olympic National Forest to the South. It has many spectacular views from its many outdoor activities, such as water sports (salt and fresh water), skiing at Hurricane Ridge, hiking, the Hoh Rainforest, hot springs and much more. It is a great place to spend a couple of extra days enjoying the outdooors.

Arrangements are made for various Visiting Professors depending on their specialty. This may or may not include seeing patients in the clinic after lunch and a noon lecture. We try to talk with the visiting professor a few weeks in advance to arrange a schedule and noon lecture topic.
In general we have the professor arrive shortly before lunch (around 11:00-11:30 a.m.). This gives us the morning to see sick patients and reduces the interruptions for the rest of the day. We have lunch together, either in our clinic or the hospital (across the street), and this is followed by a formal one-hour lecture on a pre-arranged topic. Sometimes outside physicians and nurses or professionals in other disciplines from the local community attend. PowerPoint facilities and a lecture hall are available at the local hospital, or a slide projector is available at the clinic. If you need any AV equipment (laptop and or LCD projector) please contact Carla, WWAMI coordinator at Children’s, (206) 987-2063 and she will reserve from Children’s to take with you.
If appropriate for the Professor’s specialty, at about 2:00 p.m. we see patients together and discuss the patients in between the cases. We finish about 5:30p.m. If the Professor wishes to stay for dinner, we all go out for dinner and conversation together at a local restaurant. After dinner, if the Professor wishes to stay over, we continue at one of our homes and the Professor spends the night and returns to Seattle the following morning. If it is not convenient to stay over, the Professor then returns to Seattle after dinner.
The North Olympic Peninsula abounds in recreational opportunities such as hiking & cross-country skiing in Olympic National Park, biking, kayaking the local coastline, and golf at a local course. If the Professor wishes to relax a bit while visiting our clinic, arrangements can be made for one of us to be free to accompany the Professor in these recreational pursuits.
