3 L OUISIANA T ECH U NIVERSITY BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING INTRODUCTION BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING JOBS CLINICAL ENGINEERING SALARIES INTERNSHIP QUESTIONS [1] NIH working definition of bioengineering – July 24, 1997 Definition of a Biomedical Engineer Biomedical Engineering integrates physical, chemical, mathematical, and computational sciences and engineering principles to study biology, medicine, behavior, and health. It advances fundamental concepts; creates knowledge from the molecular to the organ systems level; and develops innovative biologics, materials, processes, implants, devices and informatics approaches for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease, for patient rehabilitation, and for improving health. [1]

4 L OUISIANA T ECH U NIVERSITY BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING INTRODUCTION BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING JOBS CLINICAL ENGINEERING SALARIES INTERNSHIP QUESTIONS [1] What does the U.S. Department of Labor think of us? Biomedical Engineers are expected to have employment growth that is much faster than the average for all occupations through [2] much faster than the average The aging of the population and the focus on health issues will drive demand for better medical devices and equipment designed by biomedical engineers. Along with the demand for more sophisticated medical equipment and procedures, an increased concern for cost- effectiveness will boost demand for biomedical engineers, particularly in pharmaceutical manufacturing and related industries. [2] Because of the growing interest in this field, the number of degrees granted in biomedical engineering has increased greatly. Biomedical engineers, particularly those with only a bachelor’s degree, may face competition for jobs. Unlike the case for many other engineering specialties, a graduate degree is recommended or required for many entry-level jobs. [2]

5 L OUISIANA T ECH U NIVERSITY BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING INTRODUCTION BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING JOBS CLINICAL ENGINEERING SALARIES INTERNSHIP QUESTIONS So What Is It That We Do, Exactly? Field Service Engineer for Medical Device Company Clinical Engineer in Hospital Research Engineer for Company Management Position for Company Self-Employed Biomedical Engineer for Consulting Firm Hospital Administrator with MBA for Hospital The possibilities are endless!

8 L OUISIANA T ECH U NIVERSITY BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING INTRODUCTION BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING JOBS CLINICAL ENGINEERING SALARIES INTERNSHIP QUESTIONS Clinical Engineering – A Subdivision of Biomedical Engineering Clinical Engineering is a branch of biomedical engineering for professionals responsible for the management of medical equipment in a hospital. The tasks of a clinical engineer are typically the acquisition and management of medical device inventory, supervising biomedical engineering technicians (BMETs), ensuring that safety and regulatory issues are taken into consideration and serving as a technological consultant for any issues in a hospital where medical devices are concerned. Basically, We maintain and serve ALL medical equipment directly related to patient care. Which meaning that I must have some level of understanding for over 4,000 devices at Glenwood.
