CLINICAL EXPERIENCES

At NKU, we believe that learning is not confined to the classroom, which is why our radiation therapy program includes clinical practicum courses in seven semesters of the program.

While at the hospital/outpatient center, students deliver radiation treatments to patients under the supervision of registered therapists and physicians employed at the clinical sites.

The radiation therapy program is affiliated with 16 hospitals/outpatient cancer centers in the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati/Dayton area.
