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 and diverse 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 receive 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.
