Dosimetrist Duties

A dosimetrist plays a critical role in helping patients achieve the proper treatment and care that they need. Without the dosimetrist, a patient may receive an improper dosage or the wrong medications. Therefore, the primary duty of the dosimetrist is to make sure that the precise amount of radiation and medication is administered to cancer patients. On a daily basis, dosimetrists are required to administer and mix radioactive materials in order to safely create a medication and treatment process to help patients recover from cancer. A dosimetrist will be asked to work closely with other physicians and with oncology and radiation therapists to ensure that everyone is on the same page when it comes to the proper amount of dosage and radiation required. A dosimetrist will be handling specialized equipment made for administering radiation therapy, therefore, a strong attention to detail and an accurate hand is required. Dosimetrists may also be interacting with patients, so it is recommended that they have compassion and patience in mind.

Dosimetrist Education Requirements

A dosimetrist is required to have a bachelor’s degree in medical dosimetry or a related field. A master’s degree in medical dosimetry is often required or highly advised as well, as it can help employers find you more easily as well as give you better chances at a higher annual salary. The prospective dosimetrist must also pass a certification exam as well as an interview in order to become approved as a licensed medical dosimetrist.

Dosimetrist Job Market

Dosimetry is still a fairly new position within the fields of oncology and medical practice as a whole; therefore, there is a huge growth in demand for this position. Hospitals are finding more and more that they need a dosimetrist to help the radiation therapists administer proper and accurate dosages of radiation to each patient. A dosimetrist is essential for helping the radiation process run more smoothly. An average annual salary is around $80,000 per year, with the potential to earn more depending on experience and location. There is a 14% projected job growth over the next 10 years.
