Description

Careers in Biomedical Engineering offers readers a comprehensive overview of current and new career opportunities in the field of biomedical engineering. The book begins with a discussion of the extensive changes which the biomedical engineering profession has undergone in the last 10 years. Subsequent sections explore educational, training, and certification options for a range of subspecialty areas, as well as how specialists work together in diverse workplace settings. Biomedical engineers have more opportunities within hospitals because of the interconnection with IT departments, more access to working for health systems, more chances to find employment in free-standing clinics as they expand to become mini-emergency centers with sophisticated equipment and more opportunities to do part-time work for a variety of employers and become consultants on their own. Health care and research organizations are looking to biomedical engineers to provide project-based assistance on new medical devices and/or help comply with FDA guidelines and best practices. This book will be useful for undergraduate and graduate biomedical students, biomedical engineers seeking a career change, biomedical engineers seeking freelance employment, academic institutions, and placement services.
