Medical Laboratories

Diploma In Medical Engineering

Medical engineers are regularly employed by hospitals and clinics, making sure medical equipment is running properly. They’re responsible for maintenance and ensuring safety requirements are being met, in addition to understanding the risks a machine could pose to patients and the technicians operating it.The equipment they work on range from small devices such as a nebulizer, to larger critical machines such as x-ray imaging systems. Some medical engineers in this type of role might work for government agencies monitoring and investigating equipment failures or recalls.

Robotic is another growing and evolving field of medical engineering. Robotics are being used in surgery, endoscopy and rehabilitation care. Surgical and endoscopic robots can speed up recovery for patients and save costs for both patients and the hospital, while rehabilitation robotics have been used as a functional prosthetic or as a tool in therapy.

Robots also play a critical support role by delivering medical supplies and medication as well as disinfecting patient rooms and hospitals. Robots are also a valuable tool in education and continuing education: Clinical training robots allow medical and healthcare students to practice procedures and techniques while receiving feedback on their performance.
If you’re ready to get ahead in medical engineering though, our Diploma in Medical engineering focuses on the critical skills needed to be a leader in the field.
