 World Congress: Special Sessions for Clinical Engineering

For Clinical Engineers and BMETs, WC2015 aims to address important issues that affect our field; specifically in-house programs in our hospitals. A World Summit on Medical Device Supportability is being held on Wednesday June 10th (10:30AM - 12) - Rm 713A. This do-not-miss event is sure to attract all who are interested in the success of our in-house CE programs. The session will be interactive and will look for all viewpoints on current client/vendor challenges. These may include difficulties obtaining service information and parts for certain products and technologies. Do we go along with the vendor tide or do we make a stand and vouch for better and more cost effective support of medical devices in hospitals?

For those interested in improving their CE program, there is a session on Challenges and Benefits of Clinical Engineering Peer Review. This will cover all of the steps needed leading up to peer review and the challenges faced along the way. The session takes place on Thursday, June 11th 2015 (12-1:30PM) - Rm 713A. The CMBES Peer Review Program is designed to affirm well established programs, provide recognition of excellence in Clinical Engineering, and to provide programs with a baseline for improvement and knowledge exchange. This presentation will cover the necessary steps as well as past experiences and perspectives. The benefits of Peer Review and the most challenging aspects of the process will be examined.

New! Associate Member Category

After much consultation with CMBES members on how to reach out to the non-managerial /non-supervisory Biomedical Engineering community, we have created a new Associate Member category. This new membership category is being offered at the low rate of $45 to encourage Biomedical Engineering Technologists in the hospital environment or medical device support industry to become members. The CMBES vision is to be the national Society and professional home for medical and biological engineering in Canada and we cannot do that effectively without the participation of frontline technologists.


So, if you are a Biomedical Engineering Technologist and want the opportunity to contribute to the advancement of medical technology and issues affecting the field of biomedical engineering, become a member of our society. If you are a manager/supervisor, please encourage your staff to become members and get involved
