Radiation Therapy Curriculum

Courses in the Radiation Therapy degree program at Indiana University School of Medicine are sequential and therefore must be taken in the order specified by the program faculty. The classroom and clinical experiences are Monday through Friday from 8am until 4:30pm, with continuous enrollment during the professional core.

Students often seek employment in part-time positions outside the program, which must be balanced with evening study.
