In the Department of Radiation Medicine, we train our residents to become brilliant radiation oncologists and expert medical physicists. They are 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 and ensuring the well-being of all entrusted to our care. We believe that in order to provide excellent healthcare, we must train culturally-competent learners from diverse backgrounds, including individuals from racial and ethnic groups historically underrepresented in medicine, those raised in rural communities, and individuals who have overcome significant social and financial obstacles. OHSU aspires to be a great organization, characterized by diversity in both its people and ideas. #Onward
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.
OHSU's GME has directed all residency and fellowship programs to employ virtual practices for recruitment activities. 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.
