Academic Training in a Leading Community-Based Medical Center

Welcome! On behalf of the faculty, residents, and staff of the Department of Medical Education at Providence Portland Medical Center, we are glad you are visiting our site. The people here in our program thoughtfully maintain our enriching culture and exciting learning environment which makes this an exceptional place to develop during residency training. Internal medicine residency training at Providence Portland Medical Center creates a unique learning environment where the intellectual rigor of an academic medical center combines with the cutting-edge health systems of a top community hospital to offer the highest quality residency experience and education.

At Providence Portland, our mission is to train compassionate, evidence-based physicians who can give the best care to the patient in front of them, and contribute to our community and society as a teacher, leader, and advocate. To achieve this vision, our curriculum emphasizes mentorship, role modeling and rigorous clinical experiences that balance clinical exposure to outpatient general medicine, inpatient medicine and internal medicine subspecialties with understanding of the health care system, evidence based medicine and quality improvement. Our residents' careers testify to the success in this quest.

Providence Portland Medical Center has a longstanding commitment to supporting medical education, particularly resident training, as evidenced by our high faculty to resident ratio. This commitment is a major source of strength for our program and has allowed us to recruit and retain outstanding medical educators. We also benefit greatly from the enthusiastic support of our subspecialty colleagues and hospitalists who actively participate in teaching our residents.

Providence Portland Medical Center’s dedication to education is exemplified by the endowed Garnjobst Chair of Medical Education which supports our Department Chair. You can learn more about Dr. Garnjobst and the endowed Chair named in his honor by following the link below.
