Medical Personnel

The Oregon State Athletic Commission is currently recruiting qualified physicians with an interest in serving as a Ringside Physician.  The Commission requires that a physician be assigned to all regulated events. To be eligible to serve as a Ringside Physician in Oregon, a physician must be currently licensed in Oregon.

Ringside Physicians are asked to conduct pre-fight physical examinations of mixed martial arts and boxing competitors.  They review submitted medical testing to approve applicants for competition. Ringside Physicians observe the competition and respond to medical needs; including advice to referees on the continuation of a bout after injuries. They also perform post-competition examinations to determine if a competitor must be temporarily or permanently suspended from further competition.

Medical Personnel are temporary employees of the Oregon State Athletic Commission - Oregon State Police.  All applicants must be either a Medical Doctor (M.D.) or a Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.).  There are also opportunities to work alongside a ringside physician as a Certified Physicians Assistant (PA-C). 

If you are interested in becoming a Ringside Physician please see the Application Process below or Oregon State Athletic Commission for more information.
