Medical radiations is a rapidly advancing healthcare discipline that involves the application of ionising and non-ionising radiation for the diagnosis and treatment of injury and disease.
You will specialise in Radiation Therapy and undertake both common and stream-specific subjects.
Radiation therapy is one of the main treatment options for patients with cancer and contributes to the high cancer cure rates in Australia. Radiation therapists combine knowledge of the physical and biomedical sciences to design and verify appropriate treatment plans.

This clinical practice takes place in each year of the degree. You will gain experience in a range of clinical settings including large public teaching hospitals, small private practices, as well as metropolitan and rural centres.
