Biography & Education


Dr. Mark Rosenberg encourages patients to be active in decision making about their health care. “I believe that patients who are actively involved in their health care will ultimately enjoy better health,” he says.

Dr. Rosenberg chose to become a physician because he enjoys developing long-term relationships with his patients. “To be in a position to share in another person’s life – both in health and in illness – is a deep privilege,” he says.

Dr. Rosenberg received his medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh. He completed an internship at Montefiore Hospital in Pennsylvania and a residency at Oregon Health & Science University.

Outside of his practice, Dr. Rosenberg is very active in the community and volunteers on behalf of the uninsured. He enjoys playing tennis, kayaking and hiking.

Personal Statement: Working collaboratively with residents and faculty to create a challenging and supportive training environment has been a tremendously gratifying way to spend my professional career. Seeing the impact our graduates make is a powerful confirmation of our training program.
