The Internal Medicine Residency Program
Legacy Health is the largest locally owned, nonprofit health system in the Portland-Vancouver area. Our Internal Medicine residency program was founded in 1958 with the goal of training exceptional physicians by providing a vibrant learning environment.
Today, we continue to offer an outstanding opportunity for residents to acquire the knowledge and skills required to thrive in the practice of internal medicine. Our residents get robust clinical experience firmly rooted in academic medicine. Resident rotations offer an integrated, comprehensive curriculum that includes close interactions with academic teaching faculty, specialists, and renowned professors. In addition, residents play a key role in educating medical students from Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) and Western University of Health Sciences.
Who we are
- A community program in two high-volume medical centers
- A hospital system that values and supports resident learning
- Program directors dedicated to academic teaching, diversity, and supporting the culture of the residents
- A group of residents who work hard, and spend time together inside and outside of the hospital
“We want you to work hard while you are here and enjoy your life outside of the hospital” – Dan Gilden, M.D., Program Director
