Bachelor Applied Science Degree in Radiation and Imaging SciencesMedical Dosimetry Concentration

The BAS concentration in Medical Dosimetry is designed for radiation therapists who want to specialize in the planning of optimal radiation treatment techniques and dose calculations in collaboration with the medical physicist and radiation oncologist.

Learning Outcomes

  • Demonstrate a clear understanding of medical dosimetry in its support of radiation oncology
  • Design treatment plans for three-dimension conformal radiotherapy
  • Design treatment plans for intensity modulated radiation therapy
  • Design treatment plans for brachytherapy treatments
  • Perform hand calculations to verify plan accuracy
  • Effectively communicate with an interdisciplinary radiation oncology team
  • Demonstrate an understanding of leadership, ethical and economic issues as they pertain to medical dosimetry
