Students learn how to read the radiation results

Suffolk University and its clinical affiliates offer a post-bachelor's certificate in Medical Dosimetry for candidates who hold a bachelors degree from an accredited college or university. 

Medical dosimetrists are the "architects" of radiation therapy. As integral members of the radiation oncology team, dosimetrists create computerized treatment plans and perform dose calculations for patients undergoing radiation therapy. The treatment plans are designed to deliver a curative dose as prescribed by the radiation oncologist, while limiting exposure to nearby healthy organs.

The 21-month program consists of a combination of classroom work and clinical hands-on experience through clinical rotation at our affiliates. All clinical rotations are completed under the supervision of board certified medical dosimetrists and medical physicists and include such advanced treatment techniques as proton therapy and RapidArc. Our clinical affiliates include Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Brigham and Women’s Hospital, MGH North Shore, and MGH Newton Wellesley.

The Suffolk Medical Dosimetry Program is accredited by:

Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT)
