Family Medicine Residency

Welcome to the Family Medicine Residency program at PeaceHealth Southwest in Vancouver, Washington.  Go ahead and explore our program, both on this site and in person, so you can better understand the opportunities our residency provides.

Program Overview from David R. Ruiz, MD

We have a great team serving and learning together in a great hospital and health system.  Our program remains one of the most highly regarded family medicine residencies in the Pacific Northwest, attracting a diverse group of energetic residents.  Our residents work in a real-life setting that balances education and service.  As they graduate, they launch into careers in solo or group practice, immediate care and academic medicine.

Our faculty is just as diverse and energetic with board certified family physicians who teach and practice alongside our residents.  We have special expertise in muscoloskeletal and sports medicine, maternal child health, HIV and integrative medicine.

Welcome to our home and we look forward to meeting you!
