We present a review of the developments in the field of biomedical engineering in Mexico that have led to the present state of the profession. Starting with a community of people with diverse backgrounds but a common interest in the 1960's that were dedicated to research on one hand, and to the servicing of biomedical equipment on the other, to the establishment of undergraduate (1974) and graduate (1984) programs, until a more mature community has been established at the present. Employment opportunities are most abundant in the sales and service sector, followed by engineers in hospitals and a few research positions at established universities.
