Treating patients in the Department of Radiation Medicine is truly a team sport. In addition to a radiation oncologist, a highly trained medical team works with every patient to provide the best and safest care possible. Each team is responsible for a specific role in the treatment process. The team in our department is made up of:
25 Radiation Therapists
15 Radiation Oncologists
12 Medical Physicists
9 Radiation Oncology Nurses
6 Radiation Oncology Residents
2 Medical Physics Residents
2 Medical Assistants
The Department of Radiation Medicine is primarily based on the Marquam Hill Campus, the largest OHSU location, serving OHSU Hospital, Doernbecher Pediatric Hospital, the VA Portland Health Care System and the Center for Health and Healing. The vast majority of your time during residency will be spent at the main campus on Marquam Hill. The Department of Radiation Medicine is part of the OHSU Knight-Legacy Health Cancer Collaborative, an integrated community cancer program for radiation oncology, medical oncology and infusion services, serving Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas, Columbia and Clark County adult patients.
The department also has a number of community-based clinics around Oregon, including:
Bay Area Hospital in Coos Bay, Oregon
Columbia Memorial Hospital Cancer Center in Astoria, Oregon
Community Cancer Center in Roseburg, Oregon
Mid-Columbia Medical Center in The Dalles, Oregon
Tuality/OHSU Cancer Center in Tuality, Oregon
The Radiation Medicine team is more than just clinicians. We are hikers, campers, trail runners, gardeners, bakers, travelers and wine drinkers. We are from all over the world and are made up of diverse backgrounds and cultures. In this department, colleagues are more than co-workers, they are friends and family. And you are always greeted with a smile (even under a mask).
