Essential Information

In Florida, radiation therapy training is offered through associate degree and undergraduate certificate programs. Associate degree programs range from 77-93 credit hours and combine lectures, labs and clinical components. Certificate programs are typically designed for radiologic technologists or nuclear medicine technologists who are registered with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (AART) or for those who have completed an associate degree in radiologic technology or radiography. These programs require the completion of 43-54 credit hours. Program applicants may need to be CPR certified and have completed prerequisite courses in anatomy and physiology.

Florida State College at Jacksonville

Florida State College at Jacksonville offers a radiation therapy associate's degree program and a certificate program. The programs accept new students every two years, in even numbered years. The 43-credit-hour certificate program is available only to applicants who are registered with the ARRT as a radiologic technologist or nuclear medicine technologist. Applicants to either program must have a current cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) card. While most Associate of Science programs offer terminal degrees, Florida State College's radiation therapist associate's degree program is transferable to some bachelor's degree programs. Courses include oncology, radiographic physics and clinical education.

Hillsborough Community College

Hillsborough Community College's Department of Health Science offers two radiation therapy programs at the Dale Mabry Campus in Tampa. The school offers a 77-credit associate's degree program and a 43-credit certificate program for applicants who have previously completed a radiography program and are certified by ARRT. Within the programs, students complete simulation lecture and laboratory courses, as well as three radiation therapy clinics. Applicants to the associate's degree program must have fulfilled prerequisite courses in physiology and anatomy. The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) approves both programs.

The Fort Lauderdale campus of Keiser University offers an associate's degree. The associate's degree program is 93 credit hours. In addition to general education courses, this program focuses heavily on radiation therapy physics, practices and clinical practice.

Career Requirements

Radiation therapists must be licensed to work in the state of Florida. To be eligible, students must complete an accredited radiation therapy program and earn certification through ARRT, which requires passing an exam.
