Reinstatement

Applicants who previously held registration with the NSCMIRTP but resigned for either retirement, medical, parental, or personal reasons will need to re-apply for licensure prior to practicing as an MIRTP in Nova Scotia again.

STEPS IN THE REINSTATEMENT PROCESS

1. Application for registration

Complete a reinstatement application by entering the Registrant Login section with your e-mail address on file with the NSCMIRTP and selecting Reinstatement from the menu on the left side. If you cannot recall your e-mail on file, please contact the NSCMIRTP at info@nscmirtp.ca Please do not complete a New application.

2. Compile required documentation

Applicants for reinstatement must be able to demonstrate that they meet the following registration requirements:

A) Demonstration of good conduct

The NSCMIRTP has an obligation to protect the public and needs to be satisfied that applicants do not pose a danger to patients and families. You are required to declare any of the following:

  1. Any disciplinary finding as a MIRTP or in another profession in any Canadian province.

  2. Conviction of a criminal, drug or traffic offense, excluding minor traffic offenses such as parking or speeding.

  3. Any finding of liability in a civil proceeding.

  4. If you are currently under criminal investigation or have a pending criminal or civil court date.

  • A self-declaration must be made on your application. If you answer yes to any of the declarations, the NSCMIRTP will ask you to send more information, such as a transcript of the criminal record. The NSCMIRTP will review all information submitted to determine eligibility for licencing and, if applicable, to determine if conditions should be imposed on your licence.

  • Where applicable, a CFTA form from the most recent MIRTP organization you have been registered or licensed within the past10 years. If there is an area of concern identified by your previous regulator, you will be contacted by NSCMIRTP. You will be asked to provide more information regarding the nature and timing of the offense or concern and how the issue has been managed or resolved. Your eligibility for licensing will depend on the nature, timing, and severity of the issue.

B) Currency

Practising medical imaging and radiation therapy is important to maintain your skills and keep up to date with changes in practice. Applicants require active practise in the past 5 years.

  • This requirement is met if you have graduated from an approved MIRT program in the past 5 years.

  • Current/Recent employer information must be entered on the application. If deemed necessary, the NSCMIRTP's Registrar may request a letter or record of employment from an employer in the past 5 years stating your period of employment as an MIRTP and the hours you worked each year.

3. Proof of Professional Liability Insurance (PLI)

In accordance with PLI Policy, each applicant must present evidence they carry personal liability insurance. Each policy must contain limits of a minimum of $2,000,000 per claim/$5,000,000 aggregate.

  • This proof can be in the form of the PLI policy number. Confirmation of PLI will be required upon annual renewal of registration. A registrant shall at any time, upon request of the Registrar, provide proof of personal liability in the form of a copy of insurance card and/or policy within 14 calendar days of request.

  • Review of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) profile
 Applicants for reinstatement will need to demonstrate that they were compliant with CPD requirements prior to resigning. This can be demonstrated by a review of their online CPD portfolio
.

4. Payment of fees

The annual NSCMIRTP registration fee is $450, and the initial application fee is $100. Payment may be made by cheque, credit card or money order, payable to the NSCMIRTP, in Canadian funds. During the annual renewal process, you can choose to have subsequent NSCMIRTP dues collected via payroll deduction. This option is only available to NSHA or IWK permanent and term employees.
