MRT Week 2020 is taking place from November 8-14
MRT Week is an annual celebration (which falls on the week of November 8th every year) of the essential role that medical radiation technologists (MRTs) play in the healthcare system. MRTs deliver professional imaging and radiation-related treatment services with a caring touch, allowing patients to fully benefit from the latest in medical diagnostic and treatment technology.
This year, MRT Week is going to look and feel quite a bit different regardless of situation or restrictions, there’s still a lot all of us can do to celebrate and promote the profession – even at a distance.

Free MRT Week Webinar
Understanding the Impact of COVID-19 on the MRT Community: A CAMRT Perspective
Free for everyone (members and non-members).
This MRT Week, Mark Given and Laura Zychla from CAMRT’s Professional Practice Department will be offering an insight into the data they have been gathering since April on impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals and departments across the country. In addition, they will discuss past, present and future CAMRT initiatives to support members and the MRT profession.
As always, we run the MRT Week Webinar on a few different occasions through the week so that MRTs attending in different timezones can find a day and time that suits them best:
