The BC Radiation Therapy Program employs a selective admissions process. Admission into the program is based upon four areas: prerequisite grades, a formal interview, an assessment test in math and reading, and an observation in a radiation oncology department (See Application steps). Specific prerequisite course requirements are listed under “Prerequisites”. Individual interviews are conducted once a year during the spring quarter by the radiation therapy program interview committee. All candidates receiving a 3.0 (B) in each of the prerequisite courses will receive an interview, so long as those courses are completed by the end of Winter quarter of that year. The purpose of the interview is to determine the applicant’s general understanding of the profession, his/her communication skills, conflict resolution skills, and critical thinking skills.
