Thank you for your interest in Radiation therapy at Amarillo College .
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! 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 100% online radiation therapy program!
It is worth noting that there are a couple of 100% online programs in existence, but, while their UNIVERSITY is accredited, their radiation therapy programs are NOT accredited! The ONLY radiation thearpy program accrediting agency is the JRCERT (see left side menu "Accreditation and other Professional Links" for more information)
Our Program Web Page is utilizing a new web-page building system, so we will be building more and more onto this page in the coming weeks. But to find and download the complete information/application packet, please see the left-side menu, "Application Materials"
We expect to offer 2 program paths:
1.) Our usual 21 month full-length Associate Degree program--geared primarily towards students with no medical background, and
2.) A 16 month "Advanced Standing" program for people that are already ARRT registered radiographers.
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 to complete all of the General Education coursework before applying to the Radiation Therapy program
All application materials may be sent to me in a single manila folder at:
