As medical director of Providence Medical Group at Providence St. Vincent, Robert Gluckman, M.D., is both physician and teacher. "As a physician, I am responsible for helping my patients preserve their health and maximize their quality of life," he says. "As a teacher, my role is two-fold: to teach patients about prevention, and to encourage medical students and residents to pursue careers in internal medicine."
Dr. Gluckman earned his medical degree at the University of Chicago in 1982, and completed his residency at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago. He is board certified in internal medicine.
Dr. Gluckman is a Regent of the American College of Physicians and is actively involved in efforts to reform our health care system. In his free time, he enjoys cycling and spending time with his family.
Personal Statement: I moved to Portland in 1992 after practicing internal medicine in the Sears Tower in Chicago. Shortly after starting a private practice at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center, I joined the faculty with the internal medicine residency program and redesigned the outpatient resident clinic. Previously served as Director of the Department of Medicine Faculty practice and was Associate Program Director for the internal medicine residency. I now serve as Chief Medical Officer for the teaching clinics in Providence Medical Group. In addition, I am Co-Chair for Providence's Clinical Transformation Council, charged with redesigning healthcare Services to improve quality, lower cost and improve the patient experience.
