Work in a fast-growing health care field and learn to practice radiation therapy treatment with care, compassion, and respect.
Learn how radiation is used to treat patients with cancer. As a radiation therapist, you will work as a vital part of the cancer treatment team, use advanced technology to plan and treat patients on an individual basis, and provide patients with emotional support and assistance with managing treatment-related side-effects,
This is a direct-entry, accredited program offered in collaboration with The Michener Institute of Education for UHN, consisting of distance education, on-campus courses, and clinical placement. Students who successfully complete the program will receive both a BSc degree from Laurentian University and an Advanced Diploma in from The Michener Institute.
Graduates can rest assured knowing there is a multitude of career options they can explore post-graduation. Some career options include, but are not limited to:
- Radiation therapist
- Graduate studies and research
Many of these careers can be found in the public and private sector.
Radiation therapy is a unique program as it is a joint program between Laurentian University and the Michener Institute for Applied Sciences. Classes in our program are small and offer ample one-on-one time with professors if needed. It also allows us students to create a bond with our peers and work as a group through learning modules.
This program offers a unique opportunity where we can choose between a number of cities and work side by side with a number of health-care workers in an interprofessional clinical setting. This year long placement is the perfect experience to help you grow and prepare you for the working field. I would recommend this program to any student looking for a perfect blend of sciences and health care who can excel through self directed learning.
