Why Radiation Oncology?

Radiation oncology is an intellectually challenging and exciting career at the cutting edge of patient care, technology and research.

It gives you the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of cancer patients while working with a fascinating, technologically advanced, constantly evolving form of treatment.

To become a radiation oncologist, you must complete the training program administered by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR). The program is designed as a five-year training program and gives you broad experience across the full variety of skills that radiation oncologists need to be familiar with..
