OHSU residents are chosen through a comprehensive selection process that evaluates their preparedness, abilities, aptitudes, academic credentials, communication skills, as well as personal qualities, including motivation and integrity. OHSU's programs adhere to a strict policy of non-discrimination and do not differentiate based on gender, race, age, sexual orientation, religious preference, color, national origin, disability, or veteran status.

Your completed Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) application for a radiation oncology residency should include a thorough Curriculum Vitae highlighting academic accomplishments and clinical experiences, along with strong letters of recommendation from radiation oncologists and other faculty members. It also includes a compelling personal statement that demonstrates a genuine passion for the field and your Medical School Performance Evaluation (Dean's Letter).
International medical graduates will also need to provide a ECFMG (Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates) Certification as part of their application.

The selection process does not have any minimum board scores or grades. Applicants must graduate from an approved school of medicine or osteopathy with post-internship training. Applicants must also maintain good academic standing and must have taken USMLE Step 1.

Please review OHSU's policy, GME 33 - USMLE-COMLEX Policy, for additional guidance.
Applicants must successfully complete all United States Medical Licensing Examination requirements. Foreign medical graduates must complete all Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) requirements. There is no minimum ECFME Score.
Applicants must be legally able to work in the United States or eligible to obtain work authorization. Applicants who are not U.S. citizens must be legally able to work in the U.S. or eligible to obtain authorization to work.
Pre-employment drug screening is required. A negative drug screen (including THC, the active ingredient in marijuana) is required to finalize employment.
The Radiation Oncology Residency Program currently does not provide a PGY-1 internship. We do not mandate a specific clinical internship; instead, we require an ACGME-approved program. The application process is seperate from our residency program.
