Sites and Technology

The Department of Radiation Medicine serves patients at the OHSU’s main campus and six satellite health centers. Marquam Hill serves as the central radiation oncology facility and the Medical Physics Residency program utilizes the all facilities to ensure residents have both a broad and deep exposure to the field of Medical Physics.

The satellite health centers are located in Oregon and are accessible by car and public transportation. The sites include: Beaverton Cancer Clinic, Columbia Memorial Hospital Cancer CenterMid-Columbia Medical CenterBay Area HospitalCommunity Cancer Center and Tuality/OHSU Cancer Center. Residents may be asked to visit satellites if unique training opportunities occur, such as machine commissioning or implementation of other new technologies. Remote access to satellite networked computers and Record and Verify systems is utilized when appropriate projects or training arise. Residents also receive Cyberknife and GammaKnife training with some of our local partner hospitals.

The program is committed to ensuring that physics residents have as many opportunities to expand their knowledge as is available both within and without the OHSU Hospital system.
