Career Information
Radiation Therapy involves the use of high energy radiation to administer a therapeutic dose to a patient, and is mainly but not exclusively used to treat malignant diseases. Radiation Therapy is given in conjunction with other modalities, with Radiation Therapists forming part of a multidisciplinary team. While Radiation Therapy is the main focus, the Radiation Therapists also have to manage the psychological and emotional aspects that the patient may experience during the course of treatment being administered. Treatment simulation, graphic planning, dosimetry, quality assurance, counselling and treatment delivery are some of the aspects applicable to this profession.

Career Opportunities
Graduates find employment in academic hospitals, private and public practice both nationally and internationally, research institutes, and related industries.
