Biomedical Equipment Technology
The Biomedical Equipment Technology curriculum prepares individuals to install, operate, troubleshoot, and repair sophisticated devices and instrumentation used in the healthcare delivery system. Emphasis is placed on preventive and safety inspections to ensure biomedical equipment meets local and national safety standards.
Coursework provides a strong foundation in mathematics, physics, electronics, chemistry, anatomy, physiology, and troubleshooting techniques. People skills are very important as well as the ability to communicate both in written and oral form. A biomedical equipment technician is a problem solver.
Graduates should qualify for employment opportunities in hospitals, clinics, clinical laboratories, shared service organizations, and manufacturers' field service. With an AAS degree and two years of experience, an individual should be able to become a certified Biomedical Equipment Technician.
