Dr. R. Logan Jones is an internal medicine doctor who specializes in the care of hospitalized patients (a "Hospitalist"). He is originally from Nebraska, studied Biochemistry and French as an undergraduate, then attending medical school at the University of Nebraska Medical Center where he was actively engaged with medical education, advocacy & policy, and infectious diseases research. He moved to Portland to complete his Internal Medicine Residency here at OHSU.
He now cares for patient directly as a member of the Clinical Hospitalist Service, and supervises the care of patients admitted to the Medical Teaching Services who are primarily cared for by resident physicians.  Dr. Jones is passionate about ensuring his patients feel informed, engaged, and empowered in decisions surrounding their own health.   Within his practice, he is especially interested in how doctors can use new technologies to improve how they care for patients.
Dr. Jones is part of OHSU's innovative culture of educating doctors and other health professionals. He works with the OHSU School of Medicine on several education innovation projects. Dr. Jones is interested in exploring how US medical education can transition to a time-flexible competency-based system to ensure that all medical trainees are competent and ready to care for patients when they finish training.
Outside of OHSU, Dr. Jones is invested in improving life in Oregon through advocacy efforts through several medical professional organizations. When he's not working, Dr. Jones and his partner enjoy cooking at home, spending time with their cat and enjoying Portland's art and culinary scene.
