Welcome to Radiation Therapy:
As a radiation therapist, you will be a part of a highly skilled professional team treating and caring for patients diagnosed with cancer. It takes a very special person who possesses empathy and compassion to administer radiation treatments on a daily basis. High energy radiation beams are focused on the tumor area without permanently damaging surrounding healthy tissues.
We highly recommend students to volunteer or shadow in a nearby radiation therapy department to determine if radiation therapy is the right choice for a future career.
