The MSc Radiation Therapy is an accelerated pre-registration programme for students with a primary degree in a subject other than Radiation Therapy. The programme uses the learning and teaching methods that best support students to develop the knowledge, skills, application of knowledge and skills, and professional attributes commensurate with practice. The course includes a high level of student support including the psychosocial aspects both in the university and in the hospital environment. The aim of this programme is to provide each student with an excellent academic and clinical educational experience.The constantly evolving nature of healthcare requires that our programme not only prepares students for current healthcare practice but that it produces graduates who will act as agents for future change and progress. The type of people suited to radiation therapy are problem solvers and critical thinkers who possess the analytical skills necessary to work in a highly complex and rapidly evolving field. Communication skills, oral and written, are essential. However, to be a radiation therapist, you must be able to attain more than just academic and technical proficiency. You must possess the compassion and sensitivity necessary to provide for the physical and psychological comfort of the patient. You must be able to communicate effectively with your fellow health care professionals as well as the patients and their families. If you have these qualities, this exciting and challenging field can offer you great satisfaction and career security.We, therefore, aim to equip our graduates with the clinical and research skills, and professional attributes required to work and develop as competent clinicians, researchers and agents for change within the evolving healthcare environment. The Radiation Therapy programme is to be situated in the School of Medicine, part of the College of Medicine and Health. The College is located in the western end of the UCC campus and enjoys state of the art facilities where Radiation Therapy will be co-located.Clinical Placements will take place in the hospitals of CUH, Bons Secours Cork and UPMC Whitfield, Waterford.
