Welcome to Oregon Health & Science University!
Welcome to the Medical Physics Residency Program at Oregon Health & Science University! Our residency program began in 2011 and continues to this day with the goal of training for residents in clinical excellence and professionalism. At OHSU we’ve created a learning environment that draws on our dedicated faculty, diverse treatment modalities, and enthusiasm of our entire department to bring out the best in our residents.
One of my overarching goals is to make sure that the graduating resident in fully prepared to practice as independent medical physicists. To that end, we frequently assess skillsets and introduce the resident to increasing levels of independence while he or she works within a supportive team of radiation oncologists, nurses, therapists and dosimetrists.
Our faculty is enthusiastic about the insight and excitement residents bring to the clinic and we welcome your interest in our program. Please take a look around the department website and reach out with any questions you may have.

The Medical Physics Residency Program is Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs (CAMPEP) accredited training program. The Medical Physics Residency Program’s objectives are to provide clinical training in radiation oncology physics that will prepare graduates for board certification and professional careers in radiation oncology. The goal of program is to train clinically competent medical physicists to a level of independent practice in radiation oncology by the close of their two year residency. The training program is based on the recommendations of American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) Report No. 90 and Report No. 249.
Medical Physics residents spend two years of intense clinical training and experience in Radiation Oncology, at all times under the direct supervision of qualified/board certified, practicing medical physicists. Research projects, related to programmatic development and the implementation of new technology are highly encouraged.
