Program Director Welcome

Welcome to Oregon Health & Science University!

Monica Kishore, MS

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.

Here at OHSU our missions of healing, teaching and discovery, we unite some of the world’s brightest minds in a singular vision: to rethink everything. OHSU strives for excellence in education, research and scholarship, clinical practice and community service. 

Here in the Department of Radiation Medicine, our residents are trained become expert medical physicists equipped with the knowledge and skills to build fulfilling careers. Our two-year CAMPEP-accredited training program provides residents with intense clinical training and experience in radiation oncology and medical physics, under the direct supervision of  board certified and practicing medical physicists. While research projects are not required, research related to programmatic development and the implementation of new technology are highly encouraged and supported. We strive to provide this training in a diverse, inclusive, collegial educational environment where each resident's well-being and professional development are among our utmost priorities. 

The training program is based on the recommendations of American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) Report No. 90 and Report No. 249.
