MRT Week


MRT Week 2023 will take place from November 5-11

MRT week is an annual tradition taking place every year during the week of November 8th. It’s a  time when we come together to honor and recognize the unwavering dedication of MRTs who deliver professional imaging and radiation-related treatment services with a caring touch. Their commitment allows patients to benefit fully from the latest advancements in medical diagnostic and treatment technologist.

Whether you’re an MRT professional, a healthcare enthusiast, or simply someone who values the immense impact of MRTs, this is your moment to join in. Let’s come together, reflect on the remarkable achievements of MRTs, and celebrate their role in shaping the future of healthcare.

Mark your calendar for MRT Week. Celebrate MRT excellence. Join CAMRT-AB in honouring the dedication of MRTs during this significant annual celebration.
