Radiation Oncology Training Programs
Radiation Therapy Technology Training Program
This program provides a means for each student to gain and apply the knowledge necessary to become a competent and ethical individual skilled in the art and science of radiation therapy and also a contributing member of the health care team and society.
We offer a 4-year residency in Radiation Medicine with guidelines established by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Radiation Oncology section. The OHSU Radiation Medicine Residency Training program is approved for 6 total resident trainees, effective March 8, 2009.
Medical Physics Program
Medical health physicists are typically concerned with limiting the radiation doses to medical workers, patients, and the general population. They ensure the hospital is compliant with federal, state, and hospital regulations. OHSU's Department of Radiation Medicine/Division of Medical Physics and Oregon State University Department of Nuclear Engineering & Radiation Health Physics, will jointly administer the Oregon Medical Physics (OMP) program. Initially, degrees in medical health physics and therapeutic medical physics tracks will be offered. The OMP may eventually offer diagnostic and nuclear medicine medical physics tracks.
Rubinstein Scholar Program
Provides funding for research career development of the next generation of academic radiation oncology investigators, consistent with the discovery missions of OHSU and made possible by the generous philanthropic support of Deanne and Dick Rubinstein.
