Residency Program in Rural Oregon

The Three Sisters Rural Track Program is the first Graduate Medical Education Program and Rural Track Program in Central Oregon. As a 1-2 program, this residency will recruit up to six residents per class.

Residents will spend their first year in Portland, followed by two years in Central Oregon at our Madras hospital and Family Care Clinic. In partnership with Oregon Health & Science University, this program brings together educational teams within various clinical models to help meet the needs of rural parts of Oregon.

Why Central Oregon?

In Central Oregon, mountains, rivers, forests and high lakes abound, offering amazing recreational opportunities for adventurous souls. Plus countless craft beer pubs, cozy local restaurants and fun events every weekend only add to the charm of this place we call home.
