RTi3 Conference 2021!

RTi3 Conference 2021


RTi3 is Canada's premier annual meeting for the Radiation Therapy community. RTi3 is committed to advancing the science and practice of Radiation Therapy, showcasing the latest research and clinical innovations.


RTi3 2021 will be held virtually on Friday, March 5th and Saturday, March 6th, 2021.

The early-bird registration is now open! Register for RTi3 conference


Submissions are open for National Innovation Snapshot (NIS) abstracts. An annual RTi3 highlight, the NIS is a rapid-fire session providing Radiation Therapists from across Canada an opportunity to showcase their local, practice-based innovations to the wider community. Work presented need not be formal research, but should be innovative and of interest to a range of practice settings.

Submissions are simple: a brief 300 word summary structured as follows:

  • Title
  • Background
  • Innovation
  • Progress/Outcomes

The top peer-reviewed submissions will be invited to present, with special consideration for first time attendees. Submissions from all centres across the country are highly encouraged.

We are pleased to announce that CAMRT is again sponsoring the session and will cover the conference registration fee for qualifying individuals invited to present in the National Innovation Snapshot. 

Please review full instructions before submitting. You may submit your abstracts here

NIS Abstracts will be accepted until Monday, February 1st, 2021 at 11:59pm.
