2012 CMBES Early Career Achievement Award


AI-smallA vibrant, well rounded professional and winner of this year’s Early Career Achievement Award, Andrew Ibey comes well complimented by his peers in Biomedical Engineering.  “(Andrew) has always exemplified professionalism in all his professional capacity,” says one nominator.   “He is well grounded in the ethics of the profession and operates from a sound set of principles in all decision making.”  Yet another nominator commented, “Andrew has demonstrated his eagerness and energy to contribute to the growth of the biomedical engineering profession.”

Andrew is a Professional Engineer and received 1st Class Honors in a Masters of Engineering (Clinical Engineering) at the University of British Columbia, taking a job with St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver, Canada immediately after graduation.  As an active Biomedical Engineer, Andrew has contributed to numerous hands-on activities including investigation of over 40 adverse events, evaluation of a multidisciplinary review of epidural smart pumps, as well as production of a business plan for database consolidation, to name a few.

Prior to Vancouver, Andrew provided mechanical design and project engineering expertise to AMEC Americas Ltd. in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Oakville, Ontario as a follow up to acquiring his Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering at Queens University.

“As a relatively new engineer to the field, Andrew has accomplished far more than most in his first four years,” notes his nominator.

Andrew has been an interventional and active participant of CMBES since his membership.  One particular area of note was his role in leading the clinical engineering program for CMBEC 33 in Vancouver 2010.

We welcome Andrew as this year’s recipient of the CMBES Early Career Achievement Award.   “Andrew truly reflects what we want our profession to be and has been an inspiration to those already in the field and to those following him.”
