OHSU will review interested applicants via internet application and follow-up oral interview. Only applicants who have completed medical school and possess strong English-language skills and effective interpersonal skills will be eligible for an entering International Visitor position. The number of International Visitor positions made available each year will vary based on length of program desired. Note that continuation of the International participant in the International Visitors Program for the full agreed upon study duration is contingent upon the trainee achieving satisfactory progress in the program, as monitored by the Emergency Medicine Residency Director and assigned International Visitors Program director.
The OHSU Department of Emergency Medicine and its training programs (residency and specialty training in toxicology, education and global health) are outlined in detail on the department's web site. The 3-year Emergency Medicine residency program currently accepts 10 entering first-year residents per year.
