An Innovative Approach to Learning

The Radiation Therapy program at Cambridge is delivered through a variety of channels and includes in-class instruction, online learning and a clinical externship. The hybrid approach to learning offers many benefits to students, including:

  • Flexibility: Traditional programs require students to be on campus during rigorous schedules. Our hybrid Radiation Therapy program offers added flexibility, allowing students to enjoy a better balance between school, work, life and relationships.
  • Real-world training: Throughout the program, students are offered real-world learning opportunities. This allows students to build real skills and real knowledge in the field, instead of simply learning from textbooks or lectures. The real-world training helps students hit the ground running their first day on the job.
