Coming soon: Family Medicine Residency Program

The OHSU Tuality Healthcare Family Medicine Residency program trains future family medicine physicians to practice full spectrum care in rural and underserved communities.

The new, three-year community-based residency program is located in Hillsboro, Oregon. Our program offers:

  • Real world experience in a medical center with a community focus.
  • Comprehensive training at family medicine clinics.
  • Experience caring for newborn to elderly patients with a wide range of health conditions.
  • Opportunities to learn from OHSU’s world-class family medicine faculty.

Residents learn from family medicine faculty recruited by Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). They care for a diverse community that include families from nearby rural communities and high-tech companies. This prepares residents to practice anywhere they choose upon completion of the program.

Our Program

The Family Medicine Residency Program uses a modified “2 + 2” schedule that allows residents to complete most rotations in two-week segments, alternating between outpatient and inpatient experiences. This provides more access for patients to see residents during continuity clinics.

Residents are assigned a family medicine faculty advisor who assists them in caring for patients at one of the following clinics:

Residents work with clinical teams in all aspects of family medicine. They are assigned a panel of patients to follow and will:

  • Provide care and procedures for a wide variety of conditions that includes acute, chronic, preventive.
  • Learn about panel management and the patient centered medical home.
  • Behavioral health education that focuses on motivational interviewing and screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) and includes training in medically assisted treatment (MAT) and work with experienced MAT providers.
  • Attend monthly clinic meetings and quality improvement initiatives.
