WELCOME/PROGRAM HISTORY


Thank you for your interest in Radiation therapy at Amarillo College .

Radiation Therapy is the the use of radiation to treat cancer. There are three primary modalities for cancer treatment--surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Our students train in state of the art cancer treatment facilities to become Registered Radiation therapists, in accordance with our program Mission and Goals.

Download an application packet (pdf) for the radiation therapy program at Amarillo College.

The packet describes radiation therapy, our program, and all the application procedures (what to turn in, when to turn it in, how students are accepted, how to complete the required orientation, details about our point system for program acceptance, deadlines, etc.), and includes several forms that need to be completed and turned in to the Program Director.

Though there are deadlines in the late spring of each year, applications are accepted year 'round.

The application packet and process is filled with helpful information and usually addresses most questions prospective students might have.

It is worth noting that, while taking more General Education courses that apply to our degree (and making good grades in those courses) enhances the chances of being accepted into the program, the applicant does NOT have complete all of the General Education coursework before applying to the Radiation Therapy program.

All persons interested in Radiation Therapy should submit an application portfolio as soon as they decide they are interested in looking more closely at the field of radiation therapy--regardless of the status of their previous coursework.

All application materials may be sent to me at:
