Program overview

The Family Medicine Residency program is a community-based residency program located in Vancouver, Washington. It is part of the University of Washington Affiliated Family Practice Residency Network and sponsored by PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center.

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

Go ahead and explore our program, both on this site and in person, so you can better understand the opportunities our residency provides. 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.

Life at PeaceHealth

When residents are not busy learning, they can often be found outdoors, exploring the Pacific Northwest or just 10 miles south, soaking up the culturally and culinarily-rich city of Portland, Oregon.
