In this installment of CCE Prep, author Arif Subhan details the three main steps to becoming a certified clinical engineer: the application and preparation process, the written exam, and the oral exam.
In this column, author John Noblitt reviews some of the most basic elements of cell anatomy and physiology that biomeds may encounter on the CBET exam.
The Department of Communication Studies at the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) has announced a new doctorate program in health communication. The new PhD program will begin in the fall of 2014.
AAMI has updated and expanded its online collection of sample healthcare technology management (HTM) documents. Provided to the association by clinical engineering departments from across the nation, the documents can be used as best-practice models.
Patient safety is one of the topics in the certification in clinical engineering (CCE) examination under the area of "Risk Management/Safety." This section of the exam makes up about 10% of the CCE examination questions.
As more and more biomedical engineering departments are being asked to bring their knowledge and experience to the table, it is becoming apparent that the traditional training and curriculum may be due for an upgrade as well.
The thyristor, or four-layer diode, is not used in most newer electronic circuits today, but you could very well encounter a question or two on the CBET exam where a knowledge of thyristor basics would be very useful.
Valdez Bravo describes how he recalibrated his "traditional biomed thoughts" about what "moving up" in a healthcare organization means. Instead of pursuing a technical degree, he enrolled in a Master of Health Administration (MHA) program.
Healthcare technology strategic planning is one of the topics in the CCE examination under the heading of Technology Management, which accounts for 25% of the exam questions, the largest portion of the CCE examination.
Previous ICC Prep articles have covered basic electronic theory such as Kirchhoff’s laws, which expand on Ohm’s laws concerning resistance, current, and voltage. This article moves on to JFETs, MOSFETs, and similarities to bipolar transistors.
