The Radiation Therapy program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). The professional curriculum incorporates didactic and clinical elements and basic sciences that are reflective of contemporary practice in radiation therapy. Content and structured learning experiences develop attitudes and learning outcomes that prepare graduates to demonstrate a commitment to patient care and continued personal and professional development. The program is guided by the American Society of Radiologic Technology (ASRT) Radiation Therapy Professional Curriculum.
Upon successful completion of the program requirements, the graduate is eligible to take the radiation therapy certification examination prepared by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).

Congratulations to a very successful group of young professionals.
Jessie Culbertson, a radiologic technology student at Texas State University, has been selected to participate in the American Society of Radiologic Technologists 2013 Student Leadership Development Program.
The ASRT represents 150,000 members who perform medical imaging procedures or plan and deliver radiation therapy treatments. The Society also provides radiologic technology students with the tools, services and support they need to prepare for careers in medical imaging and radiation therapy.
As part of the application process, students were required to write a 500-700 word essay on how they expect to grow professionally by participating in the program.
Jessie Culbertson will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the ASRT Educational Symposium and Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting, June 13-16, in Albuquerque, N.M. In addition, Jessie Culbertson will attend two educational courses specifically designed for students and be assigned a professional mentor during the House of Delegates meeting.
Jessie Culbertson was one of 61 students chosen from more than 130 entries submitted by radiologic science students from around the country.
“The Student Leadership Development Program gives medical imaging and radiation therapy students the opportunity to experience firsthand how the ASRT governance process works,” said ASRT President Donna L. Thaler Long, M.S.M., R.T.(R)(M)(QM), FASRT. “While in Albuquerque, students will participate in educational activities, network with radiology leaders and learn from seasoned radiologic technologists. It’s a great way for students to get involved early and jumpstart their careers.”
