School Selection Criteria

Consider the following when choosing your program:

  • Students interested in pursuing a particular career (such as biomedical technologist, biomedical technician, clinical researcher and biomedical equipment technician) should make sure it's highlighted in their chosen program.
  • Students interested in becoming biomedical equipment technicians or medical equipment repairers should consider attending a school located near a medical device manufacturer. These manufacturers often provide training courses.
  • Attending a school located near a hospital, or a school with its own hospital, can be beneficial, as students may have the opportunity to work or intern at these facilities prior to entering the workforce.
  • Students in other branches of the medical field who may want to pad their skill set with a certificate should research programs with more specialized focuses.

Several colleges offer biomedical technology or technician programs. However, these schools may vary in the specialties, equipment, and hands-on experience they offer to students.
