How do you become a radiation therapist?

Hi I just did the careers quiz and radiation therapist was one of the answers but there wasn't anything on the 'entry pathways' page so I was wondering how you become a radiation therapist.

Hi Madeline,

Sorry for the late reply.

In order to become a radiation therapist you will need to undertake university study. The University of Otago offers Medical Radiation Therapy as a major under the Bachelor of Health Sciences degree. This is the most direct way of entering into the field.

However, other subjects such as anatomy and physiology are also useful.

Hope that this helps,
