Mary K. Nordling, M.D., FAAFP has accepted the position of Program Director of the new Tuality Family Medicine Residency in Hillsboro. Dr. Nordling helped launch the first residency on Hawai’i Island in 2014 and cared for patients from rural Hawai’i. As Program Director, she steered the Hawai’i Island Family Medicine Residency to full accreditation and helped graduate the first two classes.
“I have spent my entire family medicine career training and working in community hospital settings and serving underserved communities, both urban and rural,” Dr. Nordling shared. “I am honored to join the Tuality team and look forward to working with the hospital, community partners and OHSU to help create an excellent family medicine residency program in Hillsboro.”
Prior to moving to Hawai’i, Dr. Nordling was an Associate Program Director at the Lawrence Family Medicine Residency in Massachusetts and served patients who were primarily Spanish-speaking at a federally qualified health center (FQHC). She completed her family medicine training at St. Margaret’s in Pittsburgh and her medical school at the George Washington University in Washington DC.
Dr. Nordling will bring her expertise to Tuality as we begin creating the first family medicine residency in Washington County. Tuality hopes to welcome the first class of residents in July 2021.
