Prospective student radiation therapy education

We are the largest provider of radiation therapy student clinical placements in Victoria

We invite prospective radiation therapy students to contact us to organise a tour of one of our five radiation therapy campuses at Bendigo, Box Hill, Melbourne, Moorabbin or Sunshine. We offer a work experience program for students in Years 11 and 12 undertaking mathematics and physics subjects and interested in a radiation therapy career.  

The program can run from two days to one week and may be at any of our five campuses. 

Spaces for work experience are limited, so please contact us for more details. 

Becoming a student 

If you are interested in becoming a radiation therapist there are several resources available to help guide your decision including: 

Medical radiations open day events 

Want to see what we can offer? Every year our radiation therapy department hosts the Career in Medical Radiations open day, organised in conjunction with diagnostic imaging, nuclear medicine and physical sciences. Our staff and university providers are available on the day for tours and discussion. Students, parents and teachers are all welcome to attend. 

Amy Chatterton – radiation therapist intern 

I always wanted to work in the medical field to help people and to find a career to challenge myself daily. Radiation therapy is a career where we are helping people by treating cancer, and we can also challenge ourselves in the many aspects of planning and treatment.

Amy chose to undertake her intern year with us so she could get exposure to and experience of all sorts of different treatment types and techniques. Amy ended her internship year prepared to apply for future radiation therapy positions.
