Radiation Therapy Technology

The Radiation Therapy Technology curriculum is designed to train students to work in conjunction with nurses, physicists, and physicians in the application of prescribed doses of ionizing radiation for the treatment of disease, primarily cancer.

Course work includes physics, anatomy and physiology, dosimetry, and clinical oncology. The student will be skilled in treatment management, administration of prescribed radiation treatment, and provision of patient support.

Graduates may be eligible to sit for the National Radiation Therapy Exam, given by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Employment opportunities can be found in hospitals and freestanding cancer centers.

The Radiation Therapy Program offers a combination of online (IN), blended (BL), hybrid (HY), and traditional courses (TR). All students are required to meet on campus each semester. All students must attend clinical courses (OC) weekly.
