Daniel Pham
Radiation Therapist
Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre

What is the best part of being a radiation therapist (RT)?

The best part of being an RT is the frontline access to all the action. It's like enjoying a concert standing at the front, rather than in the back. More seriously though is the changing face of the RT profession. Patient outcomes and new technology are finally converging…
