CancerCare Manitoba
School Of Radiation Therapy


The School of Radiation Therapy at CancerCare Manitoba has been training radiation therapists for over 60 years in the unique requirements necessary to provide this specialized care.

CancerCare Manitoba (CCMB) is pleased to participate in a diploma/degree program with The University of Winnipeg that builds on the educational programming that CCMB offers while providing the broader educational programming that a University can provide.

Application for the September 2017 intake into the CancerCare Manitoba/University of Winnipeg, Department of Physics Joint Diploma/BSc Degree in Radiation Therapy is now closed for the 2016 intake year. Applications for the September 2017 intake will be accepted by the University of Winnipeg until March 1st, 2017.

The four year program includes the following:

Year One:
Specific university/college courses are required to be successfully completed before applying for entry into Year Two of the Radiation Therapy program. These courses can be taken at The University of Winnipeg, or at any accredited educational college or university that is recognized by The University of Winnipeg. Potential candidates apply through The University of Winnipeg for entry into Year Two of Radiation Therapy programming.

Years Two- Four:
After the selection process is complete, students are registered in the Radiation Therapy diploma/degree program. The majority of programming for Years Two-Four is offered through CCMB in dedicated classroom space adjacent to CCMB's main site located near Health Sciences Centre. Clinical education is provided at the main site with additional (limited) opportunity through the Western Manitoba Cancer Centre in Brandon.

Students complete the requirements for a diploma through CCMB, enabling access to the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists national certification exams (accreditation currently under review).
