Clinical Practice VI

The final clinical course is designed to perfect the content of the previous didactic and clinical courses. The content is designed to provide sequential development, application, analysis, integration, synthesis and evaluation of concepts and theories in radiation therapy. Through structured sequential assignments in clinical facilities, concepts of team practice, patient-centered clinical practice and professional development […]

Clinical Practice V

The fifth clinical course requires 32 hours per week over 11 weeks and continues to build on the sequential development, application, analysis, integration, synthesis and evaluation of concepts and theories in radiation therapy. Through structured sequential assignments in clinical facilities, concepts of team practice, patient-centered clinical practice and professional development will be discussed, examined and […]

Clinical Practice IV

The fourth clinical course continues to build on the sequential development, application, analysis, integration, synthesis and evaluation of concepts and theories in radiation therapy. Through structured sequential assignments in clinical facilities, concepts of team practice, patient-centered clinical practice and professional development will be discussed, examined and evaluated. All students enrolled in RDTH 293C will be […]

Clinical Practice III

A continuation of Clinical Practice I and II, and the beginning clinical assignment for Radiation Therapy Certificate students, content is designed to provide sequential development, application, analysis, integration, synthesis and evaluation of concepts and theories in radiation therapy. Through structured sequential assignments in clinical facilities, concepts of team practice, patient-centered clinical practice and professional development […]

Registry Review

This course is designed to prepare the radiation therapy student to take the national certification examination through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Various topics will be addressed each week with a practice registry exam given to complete the program. (Prerequisites: RDTH 220C and RDTH 210C.)

Radiation Therapy Physics

Content is designed to review and expand concepts and theories in the radiation physics course. Detailed analysis of the structure of matter, properties of radiation, nuclear transformations, x-ray production and interactions of ionizing radiation are emphasized. Also presented are treatment units used in external radiation therapy, measurement and quality of ionizing radiation produced, absorbed dose […]

Sectional Anatomy and Pathology

Content is designed to study normal sectional anatomy via diagrams and radiologic images. The pathology content is broken into two parts: general pathology and neoplasia. General pathology introduces basic disease concepts, theories of disease causation and system-by-system pathophysiologic disorders most frequently encountered in clinical practice. Neoplasia provides an in-depth study of new and abnormal development […]

Principles and Practice of Radiation Therapy II

Content is designed to examine and evaluate the management of neoplastic disease using knowledge in arts and sciences, while promoting critical thinking and the basis of ethical clinical decision making. The epidemiology, etiology, detection, diagnosis, patient condition, treatment and prognosis of neoplastic disease will be presented, discussed and evaluated in relationship to histology, anatomical site […]

Treatment Planning

Content is designed to establish factors that influence and govern clinical planning of patient treatment. Encompassed are isodose descriptions, patient contouring, radiobiologic considerations, dosimetric calculations, compensation and clinical application of treatment beams. Optimal treatment planning is emphasized along with particle beams. Sterotactic and emerging technologies are presented. (Prerequisites: RDTH 101C and RDTH 110C.)

Radiation Protection and Biology

Content is designed to present basic principles of radiation protection and safety for the radiation therapist. Radiation health and safety requirements of federal and state regulatory agencies, accreditation agencies and health care organizations are incorporated. Specific responsibilities of the radiation therapist are discussed, examined, performed and evaluated. Content also includes basic concepts and principles of […]

Clinical Practice II

A continuation of Clinical Practice I requiring two 8-hours days of clinical over 11 weeks designed to provide sequential development, application, analysis, integration, synthesis and evaluation of concepts and theories in radiation therapy. Through structured sequential assignments in clinical facilities, concepts of team practice, patient-centered clinical practice and professional development will be discussed, examined and […]
