RTU Student Testimonials
Nathan (Graduate, 2016)
As we grow in life, everyone needs to find growth in their career. Currently as the only military student, I found a school that actually understands my needs, RTU-VT. RTU is not just a school, but a place where learning goes back to its fundamental roots. The Faculty is composed of highly respected individuals who dedicated their lives to find ways for goodness. They are not just teaching. They are mentors in the field where the utmost dedication and passion is required to achieve Excellence. Medical Physics and Nanomedicine are the future for fighting Cancer and RTU is the vehicle. Marie Curie said it best: “Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood.”

RTU-VT is a wonderful option for working professionals to further their career in the “online” educational setting. Brent and staff are fully dedicated to making sure I succeed in my schooling and in my career. As a full time working, single mother, RTU makes it possible for me to take the courses I need for my Masters Degree but still work and raise my children. RTU has the highest quality professors available in the medical physics field and I can’t say enough about how wonderful the program has been. I would highly recommend RTU to anyone thinking about going back to school and working at the same time. They have become like family to me.

Most RTU instructors are also currently practicing clinicians in this field. Not only do they do an excellent job of teaching the fundamentals but they bring the real-world experience to their lectures. In addition, they do an excellent job of keeping students informed on the latest technologies, treatment modalities, procedures, protocols and regulations.
Errik Lemler (Graduate, 2010)
The staff’s ability to deliver an array of complex physical subjects in a more elementary manner coupled with the flexibility via the online component has made a challenging program more manageable. RTU’s master programs are among the most clinically oriented programs in the world and a degree from RTU should hold substantial weight in the medical physics community. I am happy and proud to be a part of this university.
Austin Schneider (Graduate, 2012)
I am a student at RTU and in the Medical Physics program. I received a Manufacturing Engineering Technology degree from Eastern Michigan University. The courses in the program are rigorous and challenging but are accompanied by knowledgeable professors and staff. The program has a great clinical basis and will prepare me and make me confident when I start working in the field.
Phyllis DeBaun (Graduate, 2017)
I’ve been asked to give a short testimonial about why I chose RTU. Why I wanted to enter the field of dosimetry? I always wanted to be a dosimetrist but life just always got in the way. I also wanted to tell you why I chose RTU. I’ve also been working on my Bachelor’s Degree my entire career as a radiation therapist. 36 years in the field and never got it completed. RTU allowed me to go to school, continue to work and do my studies at home, and then come to boot camp. Boot camp is intense. It is also awesome. You learn like you would never believe you ever could. It’s like a big family that gets together and the older generations pass down to the younger generations. And then they’re going to carry the knowledge onto another generation. You just can’t get a better education anywhere in dosimetry other than coming to RTU. Thank you.
Justin Miller (Graduate, 2017)
I entered the medical dosimetry field because I am currently a radiation therapist and I decided that I wanted a new challenge and wanted to proceed further with the oncology career. I chose RTU because I was able to work full-time and then continue my obtaining my degree in medical dosimetry. Boot camps are intense. They are long hours but if you come prepared and you get plenty of rest you learn an absolute ton. The amount of people and years of knowledge that are here are unmatched at any university that I’ve been aware of. So if you just come here with an open mind and you’re ready to learn, I don’t think that you’d be disappointed. Am I learning? Absolutely. The good thing is that when you graduate from RTU you still have access to all the videos and anything new that may come about. So, if you’re interested in learning they will definitely never stop.
