Radiation therapy involves the use of differing forms of ionizing radiation for the treatment of benign and malignant tumors. Radiation therapists administer the prescribed dose of radiation to specific sites of the patient's body as directed by the physician. They operate various types of equipment, including high-energy linear accelerators and radioactive materials, while practicing the principles of radiation protection. The radiation therapy technologist also monitors the patient's care during the treatment period. The Bachelor of Science degree curriculum is based on a combination of general education courses, professional courses, and clinical practicums.
