The Difference Between a Biomedical Engineer and a BMET

In the academic world there are Biomedical Engineers and Bioengineers graduating from the engineering curricula and Biomedical Electronic Technicians and Biomedical Engineering Technologists graduating from the engineering technology curricula.  The Biomedical Engineering and Bioengineering curricula focus on the more complex theoretical aspects of engineering and its application to biology and medicine.  They typically are prepare engineers … Continue reading The Difference Between a Biomedical Engineer and a BMET

Teaching Tool for OSHA Regulations and Hospital Safety for BMET and BME Students

Here is an OSHA website that does a very nice job stepping the user through all of the healthcare occupation safety regulations, hazards, and possible solutions using a virtual hospital representation. This website could be used to introduce students to the hospital environment. It could also be used to teach entry level BMET's and BME's … Continue reading Teaching Tool for OSHA Regulations and Hospital Safety for BMET and BME Students

Creating an Effective Engineer: The Primary Goal of a Biomedical Engineering Program

One of the issues that a number of Biomedical Engineering baccalaureate programs have had for some time is a lack of a core based on traditional engineering field. These programs put their students through a wonderful range of courses. However, the courses tend to be loosely related to each other with the exception of a … Continue reading Creating an Effective Engineer: The Primary Goal of a Biomedical Engineering Program
