Radiation Therapy

Clinical Education

Students will complete didactic courses online and participate in clinical education at a Washburn affiliated radiation therapy center (clinical affiliate). Clinical placement is required for a student to begin the program. If a clinical site is not finalized by June 1st, the student will not be eligible to begin the program.

The program is open to affiliating with new facilities as long as the facility meets the program’s affiliation requirements. The Prospective Affiliate Information Packet provides details about the program, affiliation requirements, and how to begin the process of seeking approval for affiliation

  • Tuesday-Thursday (8am-4pm)
