About Christopher M. Bender

Dr. Bender earned his medical degree from University of Texas and is a resident training in Internal Medicine at Providence Portland Medical Center Internal Medicine Residency Program. Dr. Bender was born and raised in Eugene, OR, and attended the University of Oklahoma on a National Merit Scholarship where he majored in physics with minors in biology and international studies. During college, Christopher found his love for medicine volunteering with Cascade Medical Team as part of a group that traveled to rural Guatemala to provide healthcare for the underserved populations there. After college, he moved to Dallas, TX, where he completed medical school at UT Southwestern, graduating with a distinction in quality improvement and patient safety due to his work in the area of opioid stewardship. Dr. Bender is very excited to return to the Pacific Northwest where he can pursue his outdoor interests including running, camping and hiking. He also enjoys cooking, travel and live music.
