Overview

The College of Medical Radiation Technologists of Ontario (CMRTO/The College) regulates medical radiation technologists working in Ontario. The CMRTO is responsible for protecting the public by ensuring that all registered medical radiation technologists in Ontario are qualified to practise and are practising professionally.

To practise as a medical radiation technologist in Ontario, you must register with the CMRTO. You may not use the title “Medical Radiation Technologist” or the abbreviation “M.R.T.” without being a member of the College.

Medical radiation technologists work in health care facilities, including hospitals, clinics and cancer centres. There are four specialties for medical radiation technologists:

Radiography

Radiography is the use of x-rays to produce images of parts of the body for the diagnosis of disease, trauma and congenital abnormalities. Medical radiation technologists registered in radiography may perform general x-rays, fluoroscopic examinations, angiography, mammography and computed tomography.

Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine is the use of radiopharmaceuticals to produce images of the body and treat disease. Medical radiation technologists registered in nuclear medicine use gamma cameras and computer systems to assess organ function and structure, and help in the diagnoses of numerous disorders. Nuclear medicine is used in the treatment of thyroid diseases, certain blood disorders, and bone metastases.

Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy is the use of ionizing radiation to treat diseases such as cancer. Medical radiation technologists registered in radiation therapy work together with oncologists to plan treatment, administer treatment and educate the patient on how to cope with side effects.

Magnetic Resonance

Magnetic resonance is the use of electromagnetism (static magnetic fields and radio frequencies) to produce diagnostic images. Medical radiation technologists registered in magnetic resonance play a significant role in imaging the brain, spine, abdomen, pelvis and the musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems.

A medical radiation technologist may not perform a radiographic, nuclear medicine or magnetic resonance examination or a radiation therapy treatment on a patient unless a member of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario orders the procedure.

The College does not accept or keep any incomplete application forms. If your application is not complete, it will be returned to you with a list of items that are missing.

Assessment Process

All applications from internationally educated medical radiation technologists must undergo an assessment process. This means that the CMRTO reviews the educational training and experience in medical radiation technology that you may have from another country to see if it meets the requirements for registration with the CMRTO. Each step of the assessment process is described in the next section.

The CMRTO reviews all application forms received to ensure that they are complete. If you completed your education in medical radiation technology outside of Canada, your application form will be sent to the Registration Committee for review and a decision regarding your application for registration. You will receive a letter notifying you that your application has been referred to the Registration Committee and explaining the reasons for the referral. If you have any new or additional information at that time, you will have 30 days to submit it to the Registration Committee.

All complete applications are reviewed in detail by a panel of the Registration Committee at the next scheduled meeting, following 35 days of the date of the notice of the referral of the application to the Registration Committee.

The Registration Committee meets every six to eight weeks. Each application is reviewed at least twice by the panel: the first time to review the application and make the decision; the second to review and approve the decision and Order and Reasons.

Once the Registration Committee has approved the decision and Order and Reasons, you will receive a letter to inform you of the Registration Committee’s decision and provide you with a copy of the Order and Reasons. The Order and Reasons will clearly explain the reasons for the Registration Committee’s decision. You will also be informed of your right to contact the Health Professions Appeal and Review Board to appeal the decision of the Registration Committee if you do not agree with it.

If you meet all the requirements of the College, you will be able to continue the registration process. If you do not meet the requirements of the College, the Registration Committee has the authority to refuse to issue you a Certificate of Registration.

It will usually take approximately three to four months from the time that your application for registration is accepted as complete to the time that you receive the final decision of the Registration Committee.

If the Registration Committee approves your application, you can expect to have five years from the last date of your employment as a medical radiation technologist to complete all the requirements to become registered. For example, if you last worked in January 2010 as a medical radiation technologist, you can expect that you will have to complete all registration requirements and be registered by January 2015.

Step 1 – Academic Credentials Assessment

In order to meet the academic requirement, you must show the CMRTO that you have completed a program in medical radiation technology in your specialty that the Registration Committee considers to be substantially similar to an approved Ontario program.

If you were trained outside of Canada you must send a notarized copy of your degree, diploma or certificate, or provide an original letter from your educational institution confirming successful completion of the program. You must also provide an original or notarized copy of your academic transcript of marks and a detailed curriculum or course outline for your program, certified by the educational institution or professional association. Your curriculum or course outline should contain a detailed list of the courses and description of the content of each course that you completed during your theoretical training and the amount of time spent in both the theoretical and clinical components (in hours, days or weeks). You must also provide detailed information on the clinical training you completed as part of your educational program or internship. This information may be from your educational institution or training hospital. It should include such details as: the qualifications of your clinical supervisor(s), the types of hospital(s) or clinical setting(s), the types of procedures completed, and the types of equipment used during your clinical training.

If your program required you to first complete another post-secondary educational program or courses prior to entering the program in your specialty (e.g. a Bachelor of Science, a medical radiation technology program in another specialty, or prerequisite college or university courses or credits) you must also attach a notarized copy of your certificate, diploma or degree, or an original or notarized copy of your academic transcript, or provide an original letter from your educational institution confirming that you obtained a certificate, diploma or degree in another specialty of medical radiation technology or other field of study. You must also provide a detailed curriculum or course outline for the prerequisite program or courses, certified by the educational institution or professional association. You must also provide detailed information on the clinical training you completed as part of your educational program or internship. This information may be from your educational institution or training hospital. It should include such details as: the amount of time spent in clinical training, the qualifications of your clinical supervisor(s), the types of hospital(s) or clinical setting(s), the types of procedures completed, and the types of equipment used during your clinical training.

If you are not able to provide the original or notarized copy of your credential(s), or your academic transcript(s) of marks, or an official curriculum of your program(s), the Registration Committee of the CMRTO may accept other evidence, such as an original letter from your educational program, depending on the circumstances. Please contact the CMRTO if you are unable to provide the original or notarized copies of any of your documents.

Based on the documents you provide with your application, the Registration Committee will review your educational program to determine if it is substantially similar to, but not equivalent to, an approved Ontario medical radiation technology program in your specialty. In the past, the Registration Committee has considered the following in its assessment of educational programs:

  1. The program credential achieved: for example, a degree or diploma in radiography (radiological technology), radiation therapy, nuclear medicine or magnetic resonance.
  2. The level of the educational program: for example, at a post-secondary college or university.
  3. The nature and content of the theoretical training: for example, anatomy and physiology, radiation physics and safety, patient care, clinical oncology, image evaluation and optimization, imaging equipment theory and operation, etc. Further details specific to your specialty on the nature and content of theoretical training can be found in the application form for your particular specialty.
  4. The nature and content of the clinical training: for example, the procedures an applicant was trained to perform, the qualification of his or her supervisor, the types of clinical settings, the types of equipment, etc.
  5. The depth and breadth of the program: for example, the length of the program, the number of hours spent in theoretical training, the number of hours spent in clinical training.

Step 2 — Clinical Competence Assessment

If you completed a program in medical radiation technology outside of Canada, the registration regulation requires you to demonstrate to the CMRTO that you are competent to practise in Ontario as a medical radiation technologist in your specialty. The CMRTO application form has a Certificate of Clinical Competence which provides a detailed list of all the procedures for each specialty. You must list in detail on the application form all the types of procedures that you have performed during your most recent or current employment.

To confirm that you are competent in those procedures, and that your written certification is correct, your direct clinical supervisor in your most recent or current place of employment must read and sign the section called Validation of Clinical Supervisor. Your direct clinical supervisor must be either a medical radiation technologist, radiologist or radiation oncologist who supervised your daily procedures.

The Registration Committee will assess your competence to practise based on the details described in your application form. In the past, the Registration Committee has considered the following in its assessment of an applicant’s competence to practise, whether:

  • the list of procedures that an applicant has performed is similar to those performed by medical radiation technologists in his or her specialty in Ontario;
  • an applicant’s direct clinical supervisor has confirmed that he or she has performed and is competent in the procedures listed; and
  • an applicant has performed the procedures listed within five years prior to the date of registration by the College.

You must list all the procedures that you completed at your last or current place of employment for the purpose of the Registration Committee’s assessment of your competence to practise.

You must also provide proof that you have worked as a medical radiation technologist within the last five years. A letter from your last or current employer stating your last date of employment will be required in order to meet this requirement.

Step 3 — Language Proficiency Assessment

If your professional training was in English or French, send confirmation from your training institution that the language of instruction and assessment in your program was English or French and this will be acceptable as proof of language proficiency. The evidence from your training institution should state clearly that all theoretical and clinical training and the examinations were in English or French.

If your professional training was not in English or French, you must show other proof of language proficiency. The Registration Committee accepts the following:

  • the internet-based (iBT) TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) with a minimum total score of 73, and a minimum score of 21 in speaking; or
  • the paper-based TOEFL with a minimum score of 500, and TSE with a minimum score of 40; or
  • the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) test – academic (AC) with a minimum overall score of 6 and a minimum score of 6 in speaking; or
  • the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) test – general training (GT) with a minimum overall score of 6 and a minimum score of 6 in speaking; or
  • the MELA (Michener English Language Assessment) test with a minimum score of 8 in each of reading, listening and speaking and a minimum score of 7 in writing.

Proof that you have passed either the iBT TOEFL, or the TOEFL and TSE, or the IELTS, or the MELA may be submitted with the application form or later on in the registration process. Contact information for TOEFL, IELTS and MELA are listed at the end of this career map.

Step 4 — Jurisprudence Course

You are required to have successfully completed a course in jurisprudence set or approved by the College. For this purpose, you must complete the CMRTO Legislation Learning Package and review the appropriate statutes, regulations, policies and guidelines which relate to the practice of medical radiation technology generally and to the specialty for which you are applying..

You may complete this requirement after the Registration Committee has assessed your educational program(s) and experience in medical radiation technology.

You may access the College website – Resource Room - Jurisprudence Course – to review the Legislation Learning Package and the legislation, policies and guidelines. Once you have completed the Legislation Learning Package and reviewed the appropriate statutes, regulations, policies and guidelines, you will need to print, complete, sign and date the Certificate of Completion and submit the signed certificate to the College. You may access the Certificate of Completion on the CMRTO website.

Step 5 — CAMRT National Exam

The examination approved by the CMRTO Council is the national examination of the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT). Once your application has been reviewed and approved, the CMRTO will notify you if you are eligible to write this examination.

The CMRTO will provide the CAMRT with your contact information and advise the CAMRT that you are approved to write the examination. You must register for the examination directly with the CAMRT in Ottawa following the CMRTO’s approval for you to write the examination. The application process for the CAMRT certification examination must be completed online. The documents related to your certification examination application and preparation including the curriculum guide, competency profiles, the examination blueprints, a list of recommended textbooks and a sample examination are posted on the CAMRT website.

The CAMRT National Examination is a multiple-choice exam that will test your knowledge, skill and judgement (competencies) in one of the specialties of medical radiation technology (radiography, nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance or radiation therapy). This exam is four hours long and is offered three times a year at various locations throughout Canada. The CMRTO will also provide you with a letter that will make it possible for you to join the library at The Michener Institute for Applied Health Sciences in Toronto. With that library card, you will be able to borrow the textbooks necessary to prepare for the examination.

You will have four chances, within a five-year period based on the date you last practised medical radiation technology, to pass the exam, provided that it is within the time frame designated in the Registration Committee’s decision.

As of the date of publication of this document, the Bridging Program at The Michener Institute for Applied Health Sciences and the Medical Radiological Technology Bridging Program at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) are available to assist individuals with skills training, clinical experiences, personal support and guidance needed to pass the certification examination and to help prepare landed immigrants to work in Canada. Admission to the Michener’s and NAIT Bridging Programs are available only to those applicants who have received a decision from the College’s Registration Committee that states they are eligible to sit the CAMRT examination. See the contact information at the end of this career map for information on how to contact these bridging programs.

Step 6 — Registration

If you complete all of the requirements as directed by the Registration Committee within the timeframe required by the Committee, you will be issued a Certificate of Registration and a CMRTO number. These requirements may include one or more of the following: providing proof of language fluency; providing proof of citizenship, permanent residence or authorization to engage in the practice of the profession (e.g. a work permit); completing the jurisprudence course set or approved by the College; passing the CAMRT exam; and paying the annual fee. You will then be able to work in Ontario as a medical radiation technologist in the specialty indicated on the Certificate of Registration. The Certificate of Registration is proof to the public and your employer that you are authorized to practise as a medical radiation technologist in Ontario. In order to continue practising as a medical radiation technologist in Ontario, you must pay the annual fee on or before your birthday every year.

Labour Market Information

Registration with the CMRTO is not a guarantee of employment as a medical radiation technologist in Ontario. The CMRTO does not have any information on specific employment opportunities for medical radiation technologists.

In Ontario there are approximately 6,852 registered medical radiation technologists employed in hospitals, private clinics, cancer centres, research laboratories, industry, education and administration.
