    The future of biomedical engineering is not in the classroom or the laboratory. The funds available are simply not designed to support the further development of a basic science base, and they are miniscule compared with the nearly $100 billion per year spent on health care. The biomedical engineer must turn his attention to problems of the system as a whole. Each year the cost of medical care ris... View full abstract»

    As of this date, biomedical engineering has become a recognized profession. The full impact of its efforts in the health related fields is just becoming visible to the leaders of the health delivery systems. As a profession it differs markedly from traditional engineering disciplines; however, that is the reason it has come into being. The demand for individuals well trained in the biomedical engi...

    DURING the past decade biomedical engineering has matured as a profession, and its diversity has been increasingly recognized. At the same time the environment external to biomedical engineering has changed rapidly. It has changed politically, socially, and economically. It is the thesis of this essay that biomedical engineering must recognize these external changes and define our goals and object... View full abstract»

    Although we have heard a great deal about the potential of biomedical engineering in health care, utilization of engineering and technology in the health care field has not progressed as expected. Reasons for this situation are presented and they include the points of view in industry, engineering and the medical community. Expanded and successful use of clinical engineers in health care instituti... View full abstract»

    Various philosophical approaches to bioengineering education result in the development of different pathways and programs. The basic underlying assumptions of the University of Washington program are presented along with a discussion of the operation of a nondepartmental approach. Undergraduate and graduate education are discussed in the context of preparing the engineer for participation in colla... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the development of an internship program between St. Vincent Hospital (SVH), a large community teaching hospital, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), a school of engineering. The primary objective of the internship program is the education of the student through problem solving in the hospital environment under close faculty-physician supervision. WPI receives an expand... View full abstract»

    With the increase in the number of biomedical equipment technicians (BMET's), there has been a corresponding need for opportunities for their career growth. California State University, Sacramento, is developing a ``career ladder'' program designed to meet this need. This program has been initiated in conjunction with Napa College. By carefully selecting college-level electives in the BMET program... View full abstract»

    While a considerable number of bioengineers have been trained during the past few years, relatively few have found challenging jobs in industry. This is due in part to the level of development of the biomedical industry and to the type of training received by the bioengineers. However, significant industrial roles have developed for bioengineers including management of R & D projects, clinical eva... View full abstract»
