Cancer patients know they’re in good hands when they meet a radiation therapist.
You will treat cancer patients using state-of-the-art radiation therapy methods and techniques to accurately deliver the prescribed dose of radiation to eliminate the cancer cells while minimising the effects of this radiation to the surrounding organs. You will work in an interdisciplinary team consisting of the radiation oncologist, medical physicist and dosimetrist to create a plan that offers the best treatment options for patients.
You provide emotional comfort to patients as you journey alongside them during their radiation treatment. Your work gives them the hope of recovery.
