About Radiation Therapy Specialist (A.T.C.)
The Radiation Therapy Technical Certificate prepares students to become radiation therapists who assist in the treatment of cancer patients. Working as part of a health care team and supervised by a radiation oncologist, the radiation therapist positions the patient for treatment, performs the necessary mathematical calculations to determine the radiation dosage and delivers the radiation treatments utilizing highly sophisticated equipment.
In order to be considered for the Radiation Therapy Specialist program, the student must be registered with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) as a radiologic technologist or nuclear medicine technologist.
