OHSU is committed to recruitment practices that are equitable, demonstrate our commitment to responsible stewardship of resources, and reduce negative impacts on the global environment. Thus, OHSU GME has directed all our residency and fellowship programs to utilize virtual interview practices for the upcoming recruitment season. We believe this approach will attract a diverse pool of applicants, decrease applicant financial barriers, and minimize applicant’s time away from educational and clinical activities while reducing the carbon footprint of recruitment.
Here at OHSU our missions of healing, teaching and discovery, 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 to become brilliant radiation oncologists and expert medical physicists, equipped with the knowledge and skills to build fulfilling careers as clinicians, educators, researchers and advocates.
OHSU is a community of healers dedicated to saving lives, ensuring the well-being of all entrusted to our care. We believe that in order to deliver great health care, we must train culturally-competent learners from diverse backgrounds, including members of racial and ethnic groups that are historically underrepresented in medicine, people raised in rural communities, and people who have overcome significant social and financial obstacles. OHSU has a goal to be a great organization, diverse in people and ideas. #Onward
In January 1967, the Department of Radiation Therapy was established at the University of Oregon Medical School. It has the distinction of being the first independent radiation oncology department at a medical school in the United States. In the 1980s the department name was changed from the Department of Radiation Therapy to the Department of Radiation Oncology and in 2006, the official name was changed to the Department of Radiation Medicine.

Oregon Health & Science University and the Department of Radiation Medicine recognizes the widespread existence of systemic and structural racism in our community and nation. We are committed to combating this at all levels. By doing so we will address health inequities and promote diversity and inclusion.
