David Mepham, partner at Hodgkinson Street Mepham, LLC, engages students in small group discussions about medical and legal issues they are likely to encounter in residency.

Hodgkinson Street Mepham, LLC, a Portland litigation defense law firm, is honored to partner with Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) for an annual two day session on professionalism and law for fourth-year medical students transitioning into OHSU’s Residency Program.

OHSU created the two-day sessions on the intersection of medicine and law to answer many questions residents face as they adjust to their new role. With small group discussion and hypothetical situations or case studies to examine, these interactive sessions provide a great opportunity for students to learn from legal and medical mentors, as well as fellow students.

Hodgkinson Street Mepham, LLC has paired with OHSU’s practicing physicians for the past five years to help guide student discussion throughout the sessions.

“I look forward to these workshops every year,” said David Mepham. “I am always incredibly impressed with the quality of the students and how bright and dedicated to the work they are. It’s an honor to work together and provide a legal perspective on issues that may challenge them in their first year of residency.”

A partner at the firm since its inception, Mepham specializes in the defense of healthcare professionals in medical malpractice cases, and defense of catastrophic personal injury claims. His legal experience led him to his work with the students of OHSU where he is able to mentor students on professionalism and law as young physicians.

Hodgkinson Street Mepham, LLC specializes in medical malpractice defense and construction defect claims. With three attorneys recognized as Oregon Super Lawyers and Portland’s Best Lawyers, the firm is considered a leader in these practice areas and enjoys the opportunity to work with the state’s only health and research university.
