NOTE: Our application deadline for Fall 2016 has passed. Check back here Sept. 1, 2016 for application materials for Fall 2017! While our application materials will be revised and streamlined for 2017, you can still review 2016 information on the left menu area (where it says Application Materails-START HERE) to get a feel for the application process.
WHAT IS RADIATION THERAPY? 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.
FALL 2016: 100% ONLINE OFFERING NATIONWIDE! The Radiation Therapy program is undergoing an extensive revision of our application process in anticipation of offering our program 100% ONLINE by Fall 2016! Note: Academic courses are 100% online, clinics are still "brick and mortar" and are ONLY available Mon-Fri 7:45-5:00, and there will be a virtual lab one evening/week and some scheduled class activities (specific time frames for tests and group activities). Still, this means it can be possible for a student living far away (out of state, but within the United States) to enroll in our program and complete the program while not having to move to Amarillo! We will still accept students in the Amarillo area, as we have been doing in the past--though all academic classes will be online. While there are other accredited programs that include an online component, we believe we will be the first and ONLY JRCERT accredited online radiation therapy program!
It is worth noting that there are a couple of online programs in existence, but, while their UNIVERSITY is accredited, their radiation therapy programs are NOT accredited! The ONLY radiation therapy program accrediting agency is the JRCERT (see left side menu "About our Program", then click "Accreditation and other Professional Links" for more information)
To find and download the complete information/application packet, please see the left-side menu, "Application Materials"
Note: the 16 month "Advanced Standing" program for already registered radiographers will NOT be available for Fall 2016! Only the 21 month program (one extra semester, 8 sem credit hours) is currently available.
