Some medical students from Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) hope to make the most of their summer break. The four second year OHSU students set out by bike Tuesday, to tour small Oregon towns and discuss their shortage of doctors.  “The primary and glaring challenge is that there’s just not enough of them. So the ones that are out there have more work that they can handle. And getting students connected with rural Oregon to they know that they know that’s an option.” Spokesman Wes Ferman expects the nearly 1,000 mile trip to take a full month. They plan to visit Reedsport, Bend, Prineville, and Enterprise, among other towns.
