OCOM's DAOM students now have the opportunity to complete a Clinical Externship at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) in the Division of Hematology and Oncology. Students will be shadowing the work of Dr. Angie Rademacher, ND, LAc, as she provides both naturopathic and acupuncture support for patients during cancer treatment and survivorship. This is an incredible opportunity for our students as it allows them to gain valuable insight into hospital-based practice and the opportunity to develop their clinical knowledge and proficiency in working with oncology patients.

“Working in an integrative oncology setting is a unique situation where each healthcare provider brings their skill set to collaborate and provide comprehensive care for the patient. Seeing examples of how acupuncture and naturopathic medicine fits into this model is something I am excited to offer students as well as providing a learning opportunity for a wide variety of cancer treatments and cancer types," said Dr. Rademacher.
