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.

How to apply

Effective as of May 28, 2020: OHSU will not be accepting any visiting students from other institutions to complete in-person rotations at OHSU. The Department of Radiation Medicine is in the process of developing a virtual clinical rotation for non-OHSU students interested in Radiation Oncology. Details will be available in June.

Visiting student applications (MD and DO) are processed by the Education & Student Affairs Office. Applications are accepted via Visiting Students Application Service (VSA). Hard copies of supplemental documents will not be accepted.

Learn more about applying as a visiting medical student at OHSU and OHSU Requirements for Admission.

Final acceptance is contingent on an Affiliation Agreement being in place between OHSU and your school prior to the start of the rotation.
