Radiation Therapist Duties

Radiation therapists are responsible for administering radiation therapy to cancer patients in hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices and other cancer treatment centers. The essential duties of a radiation therapist include showing compassion to patients, explaining cancer treatment plans to patients and their families, taking detailed records of treatments and medical histories, administering x-rays to target cancer cells, monitoring patient reactions to treatments and working with other physicians and oncologists to ensure the best success of the patient. Radiation therapists are responsible for providing emotional and educational aid to the patient, helping to answer any and all of their questions and providing support for them and their loved ones. A strong stomach and a compassionate heart are absolute necessities for this position, as treating cancer patients can be an emotionally heavy task.

Radiation Therapist Education Requirements

A radiation therapist is required to have an associate’s or bachelor’s degree in radiation therapy. A higher degree is also highly recommended to give you an edge over your competitors in the job market. You can move on to complete a radiation therapy certificate program as an alternative to an associate’s degree, which is accepted by some facilities. You must complete a program that teaches the proper use and operation practices of radiological equipment, as well as gaining experience working with and treating cancer patients. Finally, certification through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists is required, which helps radiation therapists learn the proper techniques and practices of their field.

Radiation Therapist Job Market

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, most radiation therapists report earning a higher wage than average. Radiation therapists have the potential to earn even more depending on experience and education. Fortunately, there is a 14% projected job growth through the year 2024, making it an increasingly expanding field with plenty of opportunities for an aspiring radiation therapist.
