Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapists help one patient at a time fight cancer by administering radiation treatments.


Challenging and rewarding

Over two years, you'll travel to several clinical affiliates, each with different types of patients and equipment, studying the principles of radiation and how they're applied to developing treatment plans. You'll also learn about radiation physics and math, and related medical fields.

Caring for patients with cancer

Treating and caring for patients with cancer is a challenge that demands both skill and compassion.

Because patient contact is a large part of radiation therapy practice, you'll also spend time studying ethics and emotional and psychological issues in healthcare.

“A cancer diagnosis is one of the most frightening and uncertain events in a patient’s life and radiation therapists are deeply involved in their treatment. Patients rely on radiation therapists’ expertise in radiation delivery, along with emotional and spiritual support to get them through this tough time in their lives.”

Pauline E. Clancy MS, RT(T), CAGS, Chairperson, Radiation Therapy

Qualifying for certification

Candidates for certification as a radiation therapist must comply with the rules of ethics contained in the ARRT standards of ethics. One issue addressed by the rules of ethics is the conviction of a crime, including a felony, a gross misdemeanor, or a misdemeanor with the sole exception of speeding and parking violations.

Individuals who have violated the rules of ethics may request a pre-application review of the violation in order to obtain a ruling of the impact on their eligibility for ARRT examination. Individuals are advised to submit this pre-application form before entry into a radiation therapy program. Applicants with a previous court record should make an appointment with the director of admissions and/or the chairperson of radiation therapy to review current information on ARRT requirements.

Radiation therapists work Monday through Friday, normal business hours and are exposed to a continuum of learning providing an exciting and challenging profession.
