Radiation therapists are trained to provide patient care and apply problem solving techniques and critical thinking skills in the administration of treatment protocols, tumor localization and dosimetry.
This program provides students with classroom instruction, laboratory simulation practice, and supervised rotations in cancer centers. Graduates of this accredited program are eligible to test for the national certification from the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Radiation therapy students will be trained to work with radiation oncologists and deliver daily doses of ionizing radiation.
