To legally practice medical imaging or radiation therapy in Nova Scotia, one must be registered with the NSCMIRTP. Registering with the regulatory body demonstrates that the individual respects the public’s right to safe, competent and ethical care, and recognizes the NSCMIRTP's role in supporting and monitoring professional practice.
All registrants of the NSCMIRTP have their name, registration number, registration status and expiry date made available to the public through the public register section of the NSCMIRTP website. All registered MIRTPs must renew their registration on an annual basis and ensure that all their information is kept up to date in their personal profile.
Registration with the NSCMIRTP assures the public that the medical imaging or radiation therapy professional (MIRTP) working in Nova Scotia has met the entry to practice requirements as defined by the MIRTP Act and Regulations. All MIRTPs are required to successfully complete an approved program in medical imaging or radiation therapy, successfully challenge an approved national entry to practice examination and meet all other requirements as defined by the regulations prior to receiving a license to practice as an MIRTP in Nova Scotia.
NSCMIRTP registration is mandatory for all practicing medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals in Nova Scotia. You cannot begin working until you have received notification that your application has been approved. Applications require up to 10 business days to be processed. The registration year runs from January 1st to December 31st annually. Those that register mid-year will have dues pro-rated for the remainder of the year. Renewals with the NSCMIRTP open annually on October 1st and should be completed by November 1st each year.
