Both were selected for a highly competitive one-year program offered by Northwestern Memorial Hospital School of Radiation Therapy in Chicago. They entered North Central College’s 3 + 1 Radiation Therapy program as first-year students. After spending three years on campus, the pair will complete their North Central degrees after one year in an accredited radiation therapy clinical school.
