Heart institute welcomes Samaritan’s first fellow

Nov 28,2011
Samaritan’s residency programs are in their third year of operation, but this past summer the system launched its first fellowship program, in cardiology, welcoming Bryon Dorgan, DO, MPH. Dr. Dorgan will complete his three-year fellowship at Samaritan Heart & Vascular Institute.

A fellowship is the period of advance subspecialty training that a physician may undertake following the completion of a residency program.

A Washington native, Dr. Dorgan earned a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from Washington State University in Pullman and a master’s degree in public health from a joint program of University of Arizona and Arizona State University. He received a medical degree from Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, Calif., and completed an internal medicine residency at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, Ill.

Dr. Dorgan works closely with his patients as an advocate, helping them to take ownership of their overall wellbeing and meet their health care goals. He has a special interest in heart failure prevention, heart disease among women, and cardiovascular risk reduction.


Dr. Dorgan is accepting new patients by referral at Samaritan Heart & Vascular Institute and can be reached at (541) 768-5205.
