The “About CAMRT” section of the website is your guide to our members, our mission and our governance structure.
Founded in 1942 by a coalition of provincial associations, the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT) is Canada’s national professional association and certifying body for medical radiation technologists and therapists across the country. There are four disciplines represented among CAMRT’s membership: radiological technology, magnetic resonance, nuclear medicine and radiation therapy.
As the national professional association, the CAMRT is a federation of ten provincial associations who share a common membership of approximately 12,000. CAMRT is the leading national body for the medical radiation technology profession and has the ability to bring to the table all relevant stakeholders.
As the national certifying body, CAMRT develops and administers national certification exams for the four disciplines among its membership. The exams test against a pre-determined standard that is reflective of the competency required to practice safely and effectively at the entry-to-practice level in the current Canadian healthcare environment.
The CAMRT Foundation exists to support its members and the advancement of the profession. While it is a separate entity from the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT), the Foundation complements and enhances the educational activities of the professional association and its members.
