Radiation Therapy Program

The Department of Radiation Oncology hosts medical dosimetrists and radiation therapy students enrolled in the Jefferson College of Health Professionals- Radiologic Sciences programs.  For more information about these academic programs, visit http://www.jefferson.edu/jchp/di/ 

Radiation therapy students experience the entire treatment process from consultation to radiation delivery.  Students are exposed to multiple imaging modalities, patient positioning devices, treatment machines and accessories.  Students interact with dosimetrists, physicists, therapists, nurses, residents, and physicians to get the full experience of working in Radiation Oncology.  Hands-on training is supplemented by a rigorous academic program, multiple courses taught by members of the Division of Medical Physics.
