DescriptionAs a Radiation Therapist, you will work within an interdisciplinary oncology team consisting of physicians and other healthcare providers in cancer centres.

You will also play an important role in providing patient support throughout the treatment process, including counselling patients on expected radiation side effects and ways to minimize them. Future career opportunities as a Radiation Therapist include (but are not limited to) research activities, advanced roles such as the Clinical Specialist Radiation Therapist (CSRT), management, education, sales/marketing, other specialties such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT), and higher education such as the Master of Health Science in Medical Radiation Sciences at the University of Toronto.

Graduates are eligible to write the national certification examinations conducted by the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT). Certification qualifies graduates to work across Canada and allows them to apply for registration with the College of Medical Radiation Technologists of Ontario (CMRTO).
