Careers at ROC
Our radiation oncology team consists of a combination of highly trained medical professionals who work together to make sure our patients receive the best care possible. Our team includes:
Radiation oncologists are the key doctors in treatment of a patient with cancer by radiation therapy. A radiation oncologist spends years studying as a medical doctor, and after many years gaining experience in all areas of the medical field, may choose to sit examinations to qualify as a specialist radiation oncologist.
Radiation therapists are health professionals that spend many years at university gaining their qualifications so they may plan and administer radiation therapy via a range of techniques and computer software.
Nurses that work within radiation oncology are clinical, registered or enrolled nurses who have studied at the tertiary level and have many years experience in caring for patients who are undergoing cancer treatment with particular attention to dealing with side effects of treatment.
The administration team consists of practice managers, administrators and receptionists who provide support to the health professionals by organising patient appointments, legal documents and billing. They ensure the smooth running of the centre each day.
Included in the ROC team are specialised medical physicists who are responsible for commissioning, calibration and quality assurance of the machines and associated equipment used during treatment. They continually perform quality assurance on the planning systems and ensure that a high level of accuracy is maintained at all times.
Other team members may include allied health professionals. Some centres have psychologists, physiotherapists or dieticians working alongside the other teams to support patients undergoing cancer treatment. Allied health professionals will have completed many years of study to work in their chosen field.
