Hi Katia In healthcare career, the biomedical engineering department within a healthcare facility has a very important role. With the increase in technology supporting the delivery of healthcare, there are very complex pieces of equipment to provide diagnosis and treatment of disease. The biomedical engineer installs and maintains the equipment in top condition. This may include blood infusion pumps, respiratory support, cardiac cath lab, blood pressure pumps, oxygen delivery equipment. There is also a career within the companies that build, delivery, sell, and support the particular pieces of equipment. Most Biomed Engineers that I know found value in an electronics or computer program of study.

Bioengineer is responsible for software development, responsible for medical research. I am not a professional. I think bioengineers need to do a lot of experiments and clinical trials. They are rigorous in their work, rich in technology, and benefit for mankind.
