Medical Student Clerkship
OHSU: 125 Years of Connection
Thank you for your interest in our department and in the medical student clerkship program.
All Clerkship applications (MD and DO) are processed by the Education & Student Affairs Office. Their website has information about the visiting student program and how to apply.
Please visit the Visiting Studentspage
The clinical clerkship in Radiation Medicine is an opportunity to learn the principles of oncology, focusing on how to care for patients who are being treated with radiation from the initial consultation to treatment planning to management of side effects. Students will be expected to be proficient in evidence-based medicine, statistics, and direct patient care.
**All applications are electronic via the Visiting Students Application Service (VSA). **
Applications will be accepted according to the schedule created by the Education & Student Affairs Office.
Visiting student applications are only accepted from students in good standing who are receiving an M.D. from a Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) accredited institution. Students from LCME accredited medical schools must apply using the AAMC's Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS). Paper applications will not be accepted.
Visiting Osteopathic Medical Student applications are only accepted from students in good standing who are receiving a D.O. degree from a school which is accredited by the Education Department of the American Osteopathic Association (AOA).
If your application is accepted, OHSU requires a criminal background check. Students will not be allowed to begin a rotation until the criminal background check has been completed.
OHSU no longer does the background check for visiting medical students. Thus, it is the responsibility of the visiting medical students to do one of the following.
- Have their school send a signed letter, on their University letterhead, stating that a background check has been performed and cleared on the student.
If your application is accepted, go to this web site:
Again, thank you for inquiring about our program; I look forward to receiving your application and meeting you.
