Salaries for professionals with BMET background or education ( A.S., B.S. or DoD Military BMET ) can range widely from $36,000 to $102,000 per year. The reason for the wide disparity is a result of the wide range of positions a BMET can fill from BMET I to Director of the Biomedical Engineering Department ( B.S. required ) or a CT or MRI Specialist. Geographical region and experience level also plays a part. Starting BMET I earn an average of about $38,000. Starting BMET II an average of $49,000. A.S. degreed individuals can expect to start at BMET I salaries. B.S. can expect to start at BMET II salaries or better. Specialists can start at around $53,000. Women appear to outperform men in some regions of the country when it comes to compensation. Overall though there appears to be a gender gap that favors men which unfortunately is typical of the rest of the job market. If you compare to last year you will see that these numbers bounce around from year to year. This is a result of the number of people who actually volunteer information. In my opinion it still does a good job of reflecting the salary range.
