According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics,
radiation therapists hold about 15,200 jobs in the United States. About 70
percent worked in hospitals, and about 18 percent worked in the offices
of physicians. A small proportion worked in outpatient care centers and
medical and diagnostic laboratories.
Because hospitals are
located throughout the country, job opportunities for radiation
therapists are not restricted to one geographic area. It is
likely, however, that most jobs will be in larger cities.
