About Ben L. Pederson

Dr. Ben Pederson's passion for family medicine is founded within the discipline's core principle of continuity of care, health prevention, and focus on the personal relationship between patients and their medical teams. He enjoys the strong relationships that can form over time with patients, their families and communities. "My role as a physician is to extend beyond the walls of the clinic or hospital and into the neighborhoods and institutions that influence the health and wellness of communities," he says.

As a primary care provider, Dr. Pederson feels continuity of care is very important. "I strive to be a consistent and reliable personal physician for all my patients," he says. "I want to partner with patients in both times of illness and health." He is a strong advocate for preventive health and working with patients at being proactive to maintain a sense of wellness and empowerment within their relationship with their mental and physical health.

Dr. Pederson earned his undergraduate degree from Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota. He earned his medical degree from the University of Minnesota Medical School and completed residency training with Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) in Portland.

His specific areas of interest within family medicine are global health, immigrant and refugee health, LGBTQ care with a special training emphasis on transgender health care, clinical quality improvement and medical education curriculum development, with research interests including health literacy, HIV prevention and community-based health promotion.

Born and raised in Minnesota, Dr. Pederson moved to Portland for his residency at OHSU. In his free time he enjoys cycling, running and cross country skiing. He is passionate about global health and has lived and worked in Kenya. He currently volunteers with Organic Health Response, a community-based organization on Mfangano Island, Lake Victoria, Kenya.
