Are you ready to Think BIG?

Within the last decade it has become evident that the role of the radiation therapist is evolving and growing within radiation medicine. Join the University of Toronto’s Master of Health Science in Medical Radiation Sciences (MHScMRS) Program, and take advantage of the wealth of clinical, leadership, and research experience of its world-renowned faculty. Given the range of career paths desired by radiation therapists and in demand in modern day practice, the MHScMRS Program allows students to customize their studies in a number of ways. Students can select from one of three pathways, each based in the radiation therapy and the broader cancer care context:

  • Research Pathway
  • Clinical Practice Pathway
  • Professional Leadership Pathway

Within each pathway, the individual selection of elective courses and the guided customization of immersive practica further tailors each learner’s graduate experience to best position them to pursue rewarding careers within the shifting healthcare landscape. A faculty advisory committee will be struck for each student to assist in aligning their experience with their desired outcomes.

Applications for September 2018 intake are due March 1, 2018 for international applicants and June 1, 2018 for domestic applicants.

Graduates of the Program can expect to:

  • Assume/create positions that capitalize on the advanced knowledge, skills, and judgment in clinical practice and research

  • Contribute to the advancement of radiation medicine

  • Improve the way we treat cancer and provide care for our patients
  • Accelerate the pace of innovation in radiation therapy through clinical research and academic endeavours
