Research plays a critical role to advances made in healthcare, and to our own profession by filling knowledge gaps, optimizing care for patients, enhancing the way MRTs work, and ensuring MRTs are seen as leaders in a complex healthcare system. As we strive to shape an association and a profession for the future, we know that evidence, knowledge and research are vital for success.

Over the years, CAMRT has been building research supports to encourage the widespread use of evidence to align patient care with evidence-based practices. Research grants are the natural extension of this strategy — an investment in research done for MRTs, by MRTs, on topics of strategic importance to the growth of the profession.

CAMRT is very excited to announce the launch of its new Research Fellowship Grant!

Research Fellowship Grant

The CAMRT Research Fellowship Grant program is a national competition for MRTs to pursue research projects of broad significance and widespread interest within the medical radiation sciences. It is intended to provide successful applicants (Research Fellows) with research environments conducive to innovation and knowledge creation, and to strengthen partnerships between CAMRT and the MRT research community.
Value and duration:  $30,000, 1 year

Research Grant

Fostering research and publication through education and funding is a key activity in CAMRT’s commitment to promote professionalism. CAMRT annually awards the Research Grant for original research related to the medical radiation sciences.
Value and duration:  up to $5,000, 1 year

Research Support

Fostering research and publication through education and funding is a key activity in support of the CAMRT’s commitment to promotion of professionalism. In addition to the research grants above, the CAMRT Foundation offers several educational grant opportunities. CAMRT has also created a Research Toolkit that provides a variety of research-related resources (available through the Member’s Resource section of the website).
