Thank you for your interest in the medical student clerkship program in the Department of Radiation Medicine.

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. 

OHSU and Standford are hosting case-based sessions every other week, led by physicians from various institutions. Rad Onc Virtual Education Rotation (ROVER) is a virtual multi-institutional session reviewing patient cases with radiation oncology physicians and discussing treatment options for each patient case. The goal is to review how to treat certain disease-specific cases.
