Radiation Therapy Virtual Info Evening

Study to become a qualified Radiation Therapist and work in a fast-paced high-tech environment which also involves patient care. If you are looking for a health career that combines science, caring and technology, this three-year degree is a great choice. Taught from our Wellington campus, it opens up excellent career opportunities in cancer care.

Why study Radiation Therapy?

You will play a vital part in the treatment of cancer and learn about this disease which touches most families at some time. Due to the lengthy nature of cancer treatment, five days a week for up to seven weeks, you’ll get to know the patients and their whānau well, which is very rewarding.

Excellent communication skills are required as you will be providing a high level of care and support throughout each patient’s course of treatment.

You will be working in a field that is globally at the forefront of research and technology development. This ensures you will keep up-to-date with new ways of treating cancer.

It also offers a good opportunity for work/life balance as working hours are typically within a normal working day. NB This qualification is offered at Otago University’s Wellington campus

1)      Virtual Information Evening, 5-6pm Thursday 5 August
This will be very similar to last year’s very popular Zoom event and gives those thinking about RT the opportunity to hear from a few students and learn about what this career entails, including  Q&A with current students.

2)      Radiation Therapy On-campus Open Day, 3-5pm Friday 20 August, Wellington campus
