A modular course which integrates academic study with practice placements; a large proportion of the modules are shared by the diagnostic and therapeutic radiography award routes with the exception of the professional studies modules which are discipline specific; successful completion of the award allows the graduate to practice as a State Registered Radiographer. Radiotherapy radiographers provide vital services to millions of people. Therapeutic radiographers need considerable knowledge of radiation science, technology, anatomy, physiology and pathology to carry out their work. Therapeutic radiographers plan and deliver prescribed treatments for cancer using x-rays and other types of radiation. They are fundamental to the care and support of patients undergoing cancer treatment. Before applying, you should visit a radiotherapy department. Successful completion of this course provides eligibility to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). It is a legal requirement that anyone who wishes to practice using a title protected by the Health Professions Order 2001 is on the HCPC Register.
