Radiation Therapy

Help conquer cancer. Become a key member of a patient’s treatment team

Students have the opportunity through free membership to be part of provincial and national associations the Ontario Association of medical Radiation Sciences and the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists.

As a student member, you can become involved in the association through various committees, attend educational events held in your regional section and the annual general conferences where you can meet other students from the varying disciplines of Medical Radiation Technology. 

Admission Interview

For consideration of admission to the program, applicants that meet the admission requirements and have the highest academic performance within the pool of applicants will be invited for an interview. A panel comprised of members of Laurentian University, The Michener Institute and The Northeast Cancer Centre communities will conduct the interviews. Applicants will be considered for admission according to their overall ranking (academics and interview).  Interviews for the September 2021 intake will be taking place during Winter/Spring 2021 in an online (virtual) format only.  Applicants who are selected to proceed to the interview stage will receive details on the process for arranging the virtual interview in their invitation.  The timing of virtual interviews is to be determined.
