Clinical Engineering: Where is it going?
Clinical Engineering (CE) has an educational curriculum that is uniquely influenced by the regional health market as well as human resources available in educational institutions. To complicate maters, clinical engineers’ duties differ from country to country, and few other health care professions have to deal with so many rapid technological changes in a such short period of time.
How shall we adapt the CE curriculum to such changes? If so, what are the timeframes in which such changes occur, and how wide should they be? Where shall these changes be directed, and how might we define the boundaries of clinical engineering tasks?
In this talk, Dr. Calil will present the changing scenario of clinical engineering over the past fifteen years and discuss the future of the field.
Saide Jorge Calil, Ph.D. is Professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil. He is the author of 3 books, 7 book chapters, and over 70 articles. He is an advisor for the Brazillian Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education, and National Health Surveillance Agency. An international expert on clinical engineering, Dr. Calil was recently recognized for his achievements with the International Clinical Engineering Award from the Americal College of Clinical Engineering.
