Welcome to Radiation Therapy:

As a radiation therapist, you are 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 tour a nearby radiation therapy department. After the tour, send us an e-mail or call us if you have questions. We will be happy to answer your questions and share our passion with you."
