AAMI has publicly unveiled the above video promoting healthcare technology management (HTM) as a career option. The video was first aired at the AAMI 2014 Conference & Expo in Philadelphia earlier this month.
Karen Waninger and Barrett Franklin of AAMI’s Technology Management Council appear on the video, which was shot at Community Heart and Vascular Hospital in Indianapolis. The two discuss some of the opportunities provided by a career in the field.
“The HTM field offers great opportunities for clinical engineers, biomedical equipment technicians (BMETs), lab and radiology specialists, and others who use their expertise to ensure that medical devices are safe and effective and available for clinical use,” said Franklin. He also highlighted estimates from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics that the BMET field will grow by 30% by 2022.
“The career opportunities available in the HTM field are virtually limitless,” added Waninger, who noted that there is a great potential for advancement for those who opt for this career choice.
