Continuing Education and Growth Opportunities

There are many opportunities for medical radiation technologists in Manitoba to expand their professional skills and explore new opportunities.

Mammography

The Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists offers comprehensive mammography training program that is offered part-time via online theory, allowing for individuals to continue working while completing the three-month program. 

As a mammography technologist, you will perform mammographic imaging studies to help detect breast tissue abnormalities. All applicants to this course are required to have completed the MRT program.

“I started my career in X-ray at Health Sciences Centre Winnipeg in 2009 and moved into CT in 2011. After 11 years in that role, I was ready for a change. I always wanted to work in women’s health, and I was interested in walking alongside patients on their journey from diagnosis to post-surgical imaging, so I decided to pursue mammography.

CT and mammography are two very different modalities, but I felt completely supported by my team throughout my transition. I was able to review my work with colleagues and management which has allowed me to improve my skills and feel comfortable in my role.

Mammography is such a rewarding area of practice, and I’m so glad I took the leap!”

– Vicki, Mammography Technologist
