Our Residents

The residents at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center (PSVMC) are a diverse and enthusiastic group. They come from a wide variety of backgrounds and each brings a unique perspective to residency. During this formative experience, the residents themselves are an integral part of the supportive and nurturing learning environment at PSVMC. The small size of the program, the presence of talented peers, and the humane call schedule all combine to allow important relationships to develop and flourish.

Message from the Chief Resident


Thank you for taking the time to visit our residency webpage. We hope that our website can give you a basic understanding of what Providence St. Vincent’s Internal Medicine Residency is all about. Choosing a residency is one the most important decisions in your medical career. I am happy to help you with this in any way I can.

We are a small community program in a large medical center with a strong history going back over 40 years. Our graduates have gone on to become hospitalists, specialists, and primary care physicians, many practicing in the Providence St. Vincent’s community and teaching our residents today. The people at Providence St. Vincent are what make this program truly unique. We have a friendly, knowledgeable, and driven group of residents from across the country who push each other to become leaders in the practice of medicine. Our program prides itself with strong conferences, a quality improvement curriculum and dedication to the practice of evidence based medicine. Here you will receive a personalized education to make you the physician you want to be.

Both in the hospital and out enjoying Portland, our residents are like an extended family. From food carts, craft breweries, Mount Hood, the Oregon coast, and hundreds of miles of bicycle lanes - Portland is a wonderful place to live. We are a family-friendly program that promotes a healthy work-life balance.

I chose Providence St. Vincent’s after I spent a month rotating here because of the welcoming residents, the strong faculty and excellent conferences. The program has given me everything I needed to prepare me for my career in internal medicine.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best wishes,

Jason Heino
