Dosimetrist Schools and Colleges

Dosimetrists usually hold 4 year degrees in medical dosimetry. Many organizations that hire these specialists prefer applicants with master's degrees. It usually takes 4-5 years to complete a bachelorís degree program and 2-3 years to earn a masterís degree. Students enrolled in dosimetrist degree programs are usually required to complete radiation therapy courses since they will more than likely participate in radiation therapy teams during their careers. Students are also required to complete multiple science and math courses to develop precise calculation skills.

Aspiring dosimetrists should enroll in programs recognized by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JCERT) to prepare for post-graduation licensing exams. The Medical Dosimetrist Certification Board (MDCB) administers licensing exams. To become licensed, candidates are required to pass an examination, complete an interview, and complete job-related tasks while being observed by an experienced dosimetrist.
