OHSU offers a variety of radiation oncology training programs. Learn more below.

Fellowship in Clinical Informatics: Radiation Oncology Track
This fellowship trains physicians in clinical informatics, prepares them to achieve board certification in the clinical informatics subspecialty and follows the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) guidelines. Fellows divide their time between informatics project work and didactic courses and earn a graduate certificate in biomedical informatics and clinical practice in their primary specialty. 

Medical Physics Graduate Program
Medical physicists focus on limiting radiation doses to medical workers, patients, and the general population while adhering to federal, state, and hospital regulations. OHSU's Department of Radiation Medicine/Division of Medical Physics and Oregon State University Department of Nuclear Engineering and Radiation Health Physics, jointly administer the Oregon Medical Physics (OMP) program.

Medical Physics Residency
Trainees experience clinical training in all aspects of radiation oncology physics. This certificate program prepares trainees for board certification and a professional career in radiation oncology.

Medical Student Clerkship
The clinical clerkship in radiation medicine is an opportunity to learn the principles of oncology, focusing on how to care for patients who are being treated with radiation from the initial consultation to treatment planning to management of side effects. Students are expected to be proficient in evidence-based medicine, statistics, and direct patient care. 

Radiation Oncology Medical Residency
OHSU offers a four-year residency in radiation medicine with guidelines established by the ACGME Radiation Oncology section.

Radiation Therapy Technology Training Program
Radiation therapists work closely with social workers, oncology nurses and physicians to assist oncology patients and their families through the physical and emotional experience of cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Rubinstein Radiation Research Scholar Program
Provides funding for research career development of the next generation of academic radiation oncology investigators. This program is made possible by the generous philanthropic support of Deanne and Dick Rubinstein.
