(9)

In addition, we supply education, events, discounts and support for our members. The OAMRS was incorporated in 1935. It was a major player in forming the National Association, The Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT). Until the late1970s, it undertook all activities for Medical Radiation Technology in Ontario including who was allowed to enter training programs. At present the OAMRS serves as the authorative voice for the Medical Radiation Sciences profession in Ontario. The OAMRS is Member driven. It is a non-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors, supported by a President & CEO, Office Staff, Committees and Section Executives. The Association is structured to deliver value to its Members, partners, allies, and other key stakeholders through its knowledge based, strategically driven governance model. In September 2012 The Ontario Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (OAMRT) merged with The Ontario Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (OSDMS) and has become The Ontario Association of Medical Radiation Sciences (OAMRS). With this merger, two highly skilled professional groups are posed to continue to deliver high quality and safe patient care in a multi-disciplinary health-care system.

Mission: Providing leadership to its Members Providing opportunities for continuing education Advising and lobbying government on matters relating our profession Supporting research, collaboration, and partnerships

As Ontario begins implementing its COVID-19 vaccination program, OAMRS remains in consultation with the Office of the Premier and the Ontario Ministry of Health to offer advice to the government on the program’s implementation, and to clarify the plan for healthcare providers including #MRTs and #DMSs. We continue to closely monitor the vaccination program.

Keep engaging with us on our social media platforms for more information about the vaccination program as it is being rolled out. Please continue to be safe in your practice, and thank you again for the personal sacrifices you are making every day on the frontlines of our health care system.
