Shushan Rana, MD, moved to the Pacific Northwest after receiving his medical degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center – San Antonio. He then completed an internship in internal medicine at Providence Portland Medical Center, and a radiation oncology residency at Oregon Health & Science University. Before coming to PeaceHealth, he also completed a fellowship in proton therapy with a focus in pediatrics.
Dr. Rana pursued radiation oncology in order to help patients at a cellular and atomic level, and strongly believes in a comprehensive approach to patient care that includes an understanding of the person’s social, mental and spiritual needs.
If he wasn’t a physician, he would be a teacher because he loves opening others to a world of new ideas and believes teachers are “selfless humble heroes.”
When not caring for patients, Dr. Rana enjoys photography, traveling and cooking with his wife and working on his nature photography hobby.
