Radiation Therapist Resume

Job Description:

The principal use of radiation therapy is to treat the patients affected with cancer. The radiation therapists are responsible for using linear accelerators to administer treatment to the patients suffering from cancer. The radiation therapists use linear accelerators to apply external beam therapy in which high energy x-rays are projected targeting the cancer cells.

The important responsibility of the radiation therapist is to monitor the physical condition of the cancer patients when radiation therapy is applied on them and watch whether there is any side effect on the patients. The therapist also has to be careful that the patients are not emotionally affected. Even though radiation therapy is sometimes used as a sole treatment to cancer, in general radiation therapy is used in conjunction with chemotherapy or surgery.

Keeping the records on up to date information on radiation therapy treatment given to the patients and their reactions to the treatment is also the responsibility of the radiation therapist. These records are to be reviewed by oncologists and other technicians to ensure that proper treatment is meted out on cancer patients.

Preparation of a Resume:

While applying for the position of a radiation therapist, preparing a well designed radiation therapist resume, to be enclosed with the application, is very much essential. You cannot describe everything about you in your application and that is why the importance of a radiation therapist resume is felt necessary. This is the opportunity to advertise and sell yourself to your prospective employer, as a company sells its products.

While the application is a place to explain your personal details, the resume is the right place to present your special skills, qualifications and experience. The resume has to be so designed to attract the attention of the employers to induce them to consider you for the forthcoming interview.
