OAMRS Cross-Province Tour Educating Sonographers on Regulation

Sonographers now join the 28 other regulated professions in Ontario! This regulation is a great achievement for Sonographers as it provides legitimacy, credibility, and protection for the profession. However, it also means practicing Sonographers are required to take steps to secure their DMS protected title.

To ensure a smooth transition to a new regulated system, OAMRS is travelling to hospitals, universities, and clinics throughout Ontario a clear understanding of what regulation means to Sonographers and what you need to do next in order to legally practice in Ontario in 2019. We’ll answer all of your questions and ensure you feel confident in your decision to be an OAMRS member because you know you have our support every step of the way.

BONUS: Sonographers that attend will receive a one-hour credit toward their required education credits!

See below for a list of the places we’ve visited, and where we’re headed next. If your town is not yet on this list, you can request a free visit and presentation of Sonography Regulation: Dispelling myths, providing clear answers, at membership@oamrs.org or by calling us at 1-800-387-4674.

OAMRS is the professional association for Ontario Sonographers and MRTs providing advocacy, PLI, education and support. OAMRS is proud to be the driving force behind getting Sonographers regulated in Ontario
