Three-year collaboration will support education, research and innovation
MD Financial Management Inc. (MD) and Scotiabank today announced a renewed agreement with the Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR) to provide three more years of support for programs that empower Radiologists to be more successful in their practices.
As the exclusive financial services partners of CAR, Scotiabank and MD will continue to provide educational content, advice and financial planning solutions tailored to the specific needs of Radiologists and their families.
“Radiologists are continuing to work under extremely stressful conditions, not the least of which is the backlog of medical imaging caused by the pandemic,” says MD CEO Daniel Labonté. “We’re proud to continue to support CAR’s mission to provide members with continuing professional development and research, helping radiologists stay at the leading edge of medical imaging health care.”
“We are excited to continue our partnership with MD and Scotiabank,” says Dr. Gilles Soulez, President of the Canadian Association of Radiologists. “Over the course of the last few years, not only have they provided sound financial advice to our members, but they have supported a number of initiatives including our Physician Wellness Initiatives and helped to fund academic resources and learning opportunities for our Radiologists in training. We look forward to working with MD and Scotiabank for another three years.”
As the financial services partners of more than 30 organizations (including CAR), MD and Scotiabank are deeply committed to supporting Canada’s physicians and their families. Together, we share values that help build a more sustainable healthcare system.
