Built on the three components of education, ethics, and examination as outlined in the American Registry or Radiologic Technologists "Equation of Excellence," the Radiation Therapy program at Oregon Health & Science University provides the preparatory education through didactic and clinical requirements to qualify graduates to become competent and ethical practitioners in the art and science of radiation therapy.
By promoting a culture of ethical behavior, the program promotes compliance with the rules of ethics required for initial and continuing certification while also encouraging self-directed learning. The mission and goals of this program are consistent with those of the university and school.
Through the combination of didactic and clinical education, the Program provides Radiation Therapy students with a strong foundation in oncological diseases, physics, patient care and clinical skills.
Technical skills gained will allow students to utilize ionizing-radiation producing equipment in the treatment of cancer for both curative and palliative purposes. In addition to meeting the technical requirements, graduates will possess the knowledge and skills to provide the appropriate patient care and patient-centered communication to patients and their families experiencing the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
The Radiation Therapy Program at OHSU is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).
