I would like to sincerely thank the CAMRT Foundation for the financial assistance provided to me over the course of my Masters in Health Studies program. This past month I completed my MHS and the support of the CAMRTF was instrumental in helping me achieve this goal.
The CAMRT Foundation is doing important work by supporting members in their academic pursuits. A dedication to continuous learning requires a significant commitment, both in terms of time and finances. These grants help to lighten the financial burden of continuing education and the support of one’s peers is also a great motivator along the way.

This grant has significantly alleviated the financial burden of pursuing a MSc. in Project Management. Thanks to your support, my education has led to new opportunities for me in managing MRTs, promoting professional development, advancement of clinical practice and advocacy for greater academic work within the profession.
We are fortunate to have a grant program such as this to support MRTs in their educational endeavours. This support alleviates the financial barriers that may discourage or prevent others from pursuing their goals. Continuing education is integral to the advancement of our profession and ensuring the highest quality practice in medical imaging and radiation therapy.
