The Medical Radiation Sciences program of University of Toronto is your first step towards a rewarding career as a Medical Radiation Technologist (MRT): a caring and compassionate healthcare professional and an essential member of the interprofessional healthcare team.

Working in a dynamic environment with emerging technologies, MRTs are regulated health professionals who use sophisticated radiation equipment to produce diagnostic images of a patient’s body or who administer radiation to treat patients for certain medical conditions. As a primary point of contact for patients on their healthcare journey, MRTs are committed to a collaborative patient- and family-centred approach to care. Future career opportunities include (but are not limited to): other specialties such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), research activities, management, industry, education and sales/marketing, medical equipment sales, health policy analyst, as well as pursuing higher education opportunities at a Masters level.

MRS students have the opportunity to choose one of three disciplines as the focus of their studies:

  • Radiation Therapy uses ionizing radiation to destroy cancerous tissue while monitoring patients.
  • Radiological Technology uses external x-rays to image body structures.
  • Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging Technology administers radiopharmaceuticals to assess organ function and cellular disease.
