Dosimetrists

Job Description

Medical dosimetrists use training in anatomy, physics and radiobiology to calculate effective radiologic treatment doses for cancer patients, while minimizing side effects.

Academic Requirements

Dosimetrists often complete a bachelor’s degree program in medical dosimetry. Individuals who already have a degree in radiation therapy may enroll in a medical dosimetry certificate program. These programs often include class topics in cross-sectional anatomy, treatment plans, radiation doses, medical terminology and dosimetry physics. Many programs also require students to complete clinical experiences.
