Oregon Health & Science University is located in Portland, OR. OHSU is the major health-care facility and the only University hospital for the state of Oregon. It serves the needs of patients throughout Oregon, southern Washington, Northern California, Idaho, and Alaska. OHSU proudly stands behind its mission statement: "The Knowledge of all for the care of one."
In the Department of Diagnostic Radiology, the education of our residents and fellows is a top priority. Our programs guarantee individual attention as faculty work side by side with residents and fellows. Daily work sessions are frequently interrupted for impromptu interesting case discussions. Faculty members strive to create an environment of sharing meant to stimulate engaging debates and discussions where all trainees and staff are encouraged to demonstrate and sometimes challenge acquired knowledge.
Our four year residency program encompasses all modalities of diagnostic imaging and prepares newly qualified radiologists for satisfying careers in either private practice or academic radiology. Our alumni graduate ready to begin their new practice as supremely proficient radiologists with more than the ability to interpret complex imaging but also with the ability to effectively communicate those findings.
We also offer radiology residents the opportunity to delve deeper and further their knowledge base with our six fellowships or our Nuclear Medicine Residency. Our department offers fellowships in Body Imaging, Musculoskeletal Radiology, Neuroradiology, Pediatric Radiology, Thoracic Imaging, and Women's Imaging. Nuclear Medicine, Neuroradiology and Pediatric Radiology are ACGME accredited programs.
Please visit each section page to learn more about what we do and what we can offer.
We do not teach classes in Radiography or Ultrasound but we are a clinical education site for Portland Community College and Oregon Institute of Technology. Please follow the links for more information about our programs.

The Department of Diagnostic Radiology employs technologists trained in all imaging modalities. We do not, however, have a training program of our own. X-ray students from the Portland Community College program and ultrasound students from the Oregon Institute of Technology program complete their externships at our hospitals and clinics. They receive exposure to the wide variety of exams and pathologies that are available at a university hospital complex. For more information about the programs, follow these links:
