Marshall, It would depend on what branch of BioMed you want to go into. Some go into research, where you

would be developing new types of equipment or software,, or new uses for existing equipment. Another branch

is the repair and maintenance BioMed department, in a hospital or private company. In this area you would be

assuring the safety of all the equipment used on patients in the hospitals, doctor's offices and clinics that you

would serve. Either way you would be helping people every day, to recover from illness or injury and live better lives. Good luck whichever you choose.

MICHAEL recommends the following next steps:

  • Talk you your school guidance councilor, or speak with an admissions officer of an engineering school that has the program you are interested in. Another resource would be a local Biomedical Society.
