Radiation Therapy Physics Curriculum M.S. Plan

Image: TherapyPhysicsBanner.png

* Required for all students < Radiation Therapy Physics Track {} Prerequisite Courses


Radiation oncology involves the use of ionizing radiation in the treatment of patients with cancer and occasionally non-malignant conditions. Therapeutic doses of ionizing radiation may only be prescribed by a physician who possesses the appropriate training and experience in the application of this modality. The delivery of radiation as a therapeutic modality demands strict attention to the training and experience of all personnel associated with this process, the equipment used in this process and the patient and personnel safety in the delivery of a process.

Radiation Therapy Physics is that branch of medical physics which deals with (1) the therapeutic application of roentgen rays, of gamma rays, of electron and charged particle rays, of neutrons, and of radiation from sealed sources, and (2) the equipment associated with their production and use.
