The healthcare worker shortage is growing across the nation, and like most states, Oregon needs more physicians. Without enough doctors to meet the state’s health needs, many residents are left waiting to access appropriate care.

To help address the worsening crisis, telehealth companies have a number of job openings for licensed, board-certified physicians in the Beaver State.

How To Become a Remote Physician in Oregon

If you’re interested in becoming a telehealth doctor, it’s important to know that you’ll be held to the same standards and will need the same qualifications as clinicians who see patients in an in-person facility.

To be able to practice virtual care in Oregon, you must receive traditional medical education and training, and be either a board-eligible or board-certified physician. These are the necessary steps for becoming a telehealth clinician in Oregon:

  • Education: The first thing aspiring remote doctors must do is earn a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution. You then need to earn a Medical Doctor (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degree.

  • Exams: When you’re nearing the end of your medical degree program, you must pass the first portion of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE).

  • Residency: After graduating with a medical degree, you can apply for residency programs to become specialized in your area of choice. Telehealth companies are seeking doctors who specialize in internal medicine, emergency medicine, and family medicine, because they typically treat a broad range of conditions and patient demographics.

  • Become licensed to practice medicine in Oregon: To legally practice medicine in Oregon, you must pass the final portion of the USMLE. Those on the path toward licensure as a DO must complete the Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination (COMLEX-USA). You’ll then need to submit an application for physician licensure to the Oregon Medical Board. The application fee for physician licensure in Oregon is $375.

  • Board certification: If you elect to become a board certified MD or DO, you must complete the ABMS exam. Note that some virtual care positions require doctors to be board certified.

Requirements for Remote Physicians in Oregon

Practicing as a telehealth physician is a great way to supplement your income while working from home and maintaining a flexible schedule. Whether you’re interested in full-time or part-time work, there are a number of virtual care opportunities available in Oregon for MDs and DOs.

Once you obtain medical licensure and are board certified, you can start your job search for a telehealth position in Portland, Salem, Eugene, or anywhere else in the state.

Before you apply to virtual care roles, here’s what you should know:

  • Work-from-home physicians: As a remote doctor, you need to adhere to the same standard of care as your colleagues who work at in-person healthcare facilities. The key difference is that telemedicine doctors use technology to complete synchronous (video) and asynchronous (chat) visits with patients. Note that remote physicians can only conduct consults with patients physically located in the state where you’re licensed.

  • Additional training: The standard of care in telemedicine is the same as for in-person care, and you won’t need to complete any state-mandated training specific to remote care. However, telehealth companies usually offer additional training to teach clinicians how to use relevant technology and platforms, in addition to best practices for good webside manner.

  • Necessary documentation: When it’s time to apply for remote care positions, make sure to update your resume and provide appropriate paperwork documenting your education and credentials.

Telemedicine companies usually post roles they’re hiring for on job search sites like Indeed, ZipRecruiter, Glassdoor, and LinkedIn, so these are excellent places to begin looking for remote care opportunities.
