MRT Week 2022 will take place from November 6-12
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.

Leader as Advocate: Experienced leaders in the MRT community will discuss their varied perspectives on advocacy, including championing personal growth, professional change, and patient well-being. The aim of this webinar is to share stories about how advocacy can take many shapes and to outline how the activism of a small group can make a big difference. Join us to learn more on this empowering topic! This will also be a part of our upcoming Leadership Foundations micro-certificate, so taking it will give you a head-start!
