AMTIE officially changed its name in January 2012, from American Medical Technologists Institute for Education to American Medical Technologists Institute for Excellence. In addition to the change in the name came the change in its mission.
AMTIE now is charged with the administration of scholarships and grants associated with enhancing educational and competency opportunities for current and future allied health care professionals.
To achieve the new AMTIE charge for the funding of scholarships and grants, AMTIE currently solicits its members for contributions when they are renewing their membership in AMT. Additionally, AMTIE is developing their processes and methodology for the solicitation of donations from philanthropic organizations, businesses, educational institutions and the healthcare community, in the hope of being able fund more scholarships and educational grants.
