Salaries for professionals with BMET background or education ( A.S., B.S. or DoD Military BMET ) can range widely from $40,000 to $102,000 per year.  The reason for the wide range in salary is 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.  Results for BMET I and II this year dropped back to more normal levels after an unexpectedly large jump in 2009.  The 2009 results were likely a statistical aberration.   The reported starting BMET I with less than a year of experience for 2010 earned an average of about $40,000.  Starting BMET II an average of $48,000.  A.S. degreed individuals can expect to start at BMET I salaries.  B.S. can expect to start at BMET II salaries or better.  Radiology specialists can start at around $75,000.  This is a considerable jump from 2009.  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 size of the sample and the varying number of people who actually volunteer information. In my opinion this survey still does a good job of reflecting the salary range and job satisfaction.
