Welcome to the Diagnostic Radiology Medical Student Home Page. Here you will find the goals and objectives of our program, conference schedules, previously done powerpoint presentations and links to radiology journals and sites. Please feel free to let us know if you feel any additional information is needed.
We receive many applications from students who want to come to OHSU for an "audition" elective in order to strengthen their application to residency. OHSU students are given first priority in being placed in elective slots. If slots remain, they are open to students from any US medical school. However, we do not automatically interview all applicants who do an audition elective. In order to reduce the chances of having students come for electives then not being interviewed, we will review the grade transcript and board scores (submitted as part of the OHSU School of Medicine visiting student application) of each applicant, so that we can assess their chances for being offered an interview. Students will be apprised of this assessment, and may choose not to come if their chances of being interviewed are not good. If there is more than one student who wants an elective slot, preference will be given to the one who we anticipate interviewing. Since it is impossible to predict the applicant pool before November, we will do our best to make this assessment, but do not guarantee that we will interview all students who come for electives.
We also recognize that some students want to take our electives for reasons other than auditioning for residency. Please indicate in your application if that is the case, and you will be offered a slot on a first-come/ first-served basis.
