Webinar: Diagnostic Imaging Support in Canadian Clinical Engineering Programs
Friday, November 20, 2015 11:30 am – 1:30 pm EDT

You may register for this webinar through the CMBES Network. Special rates are available to CMBES members, be sure to log in to your CMBES Network account before registering to receive your discount. Free registration is available to student members.


This is an important webinar for all clinical engineering departments and imaging services looking to provide increased value and cost effectiveness for their institutions. A panel of clinical engineering leaders in this sector will discuss and answer questions related to how it’s done at various facilities, how the resources and skill bases are acquired, and how to get a program started. We have representatives from across Canada to answer all of your questions. We’ll see comparisons among existing programs and how further improvements can be achieved. This, once again, is another no-miss event conducted by the CMBES.

Donations - Understanding Challenges & Best Practices

Donations - Understanding Challenges & Best Practices is a short film by the Canadian Medical and Biological Engineering Society (CMBES) about the benefits and challenges of donating medical equipment to developing countries.   The film features Ghana Medical Help, just one example of the many organizations across Canada making a difference by providing much needed medical equipment around the globe.  Important steps to consider when initiating a donation activity are highlighted in the film, along with additional resources.

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
