Radiology Technician

Radiation Therapy Certificate

See Details

Radiation therapy is one of the most common treatments for cancer and is prescribed in more than half of all cancer cases. It works on the premise that cancerous cells are more sensitive than normal cells to the damaging effects of radiation. Radiation therapy uses high energy X-rays, gamma rays, electron beams, or other ionizing radiation to produce biologic changes in the DNA of a cancer cell. Altering the DNA in this way causes cell death at the time of division, potentially eliminating the malignancy. Radiation therapy is used either on its own or in combination with surgery and/or chemotherapy to achieve a cure for cancer in some patients and to ease the pain from cancer in others. Although Radiation Therapy primarily treats cancer, other disorders and conditions can be managed through the administration of radiation therapy.

Many people become free of cancer after receiving radiation treatment alone or in combination with surgery, chemotherapy and/or immunotherapy (biologic therapy). The Radiation Therapist works with a team of oncology professionals to effectively design and administer a therapeutic dose of radiation to a targeted area. They use advanced computer systems to operate sophisticated radiation therapy equipment such as a Linear Accelerator and a Computed Tomography Simulator. Additionally, the Radiation Therapists assists in managing the patient’s well-being by providing care and support for patients throughout their course of radiotherapy treatment..

The Bergen Community College Radiation Therapy Program is a one year advanced certificate program. Didactic courses are incorporated with formalized lectures and laboratory training followed by actual clinical experience. Upon entry into the program, the candidate must be a registered or registry eligible Diagnostic Radiographer and must have completed an Associate’s degree or higher (Bachelor’s or Master’s) from an accredited college with a minimum overall average GPA of 2.5. Admission is for the Fall semester only. Upon completion of the program, the graduate is eligible to apply for state licensure and national registration in this specialty. A maximum of thirty-six college level credits may be awarded to the graduate.
