The Radiation Therapy program at Howard University has a rich legacy of providing quality education for individuals interested in a career as a radiation therapist who will serve diverse and underserved populations locally and globally.


The clinical education phase of the Radiation Therapy program at Howard University is designed to reinforce didactic information as it relates to clinical procedures. It is expected that through this effort, greater cohesion can be achieved between the two learning environments, thereby facilitating a greater transfer of knowledge between them. 

During clinical education, students have an opportunity to receive practical experience at prestigious affiliated hospitals. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will be eligible to sit for the national certification examination by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists with specialization in radiation therapy.
