Pathway Overview

The Clinical Engineering Pathway is a comprehensive online course designed to prepare Learners for the vital role of bridging the gap between modern medicine and equally modern engineering. With the increasing dependence of clinical medicine on sophisticated technologies and complex equipment, clinical engineers have become essential members of the healthcare team.

The pathway is based on classical engineering principles and is supplemented by courses in human factors, systems analysis, medical terminology, measurement, and instrumentation. This background prepares clinical engineers to fulfill a variety of roles in research, design, academia, and most often, in the clinical environment. In daily practice, clinical engineers serve as translators between the worlds of medical, engineering, and business professionals.

Today, healthcare technology extends into information and communications systems, and traditional medical equipment is more complex than ever. The Clinical Engineering Pathway equips Learners with the skills and knowledge necessary to assess, manage, and solve problems in this hyper-tech world. By the end of the course, Learners will have a deep understanding of clinical engineering principles and be prepared to apply them in a variety of healthcare settings.
