Medical Technology Course

Only some positions in the healthcare sector necessitate close patient interaction. Other in-demand allied health science fields, such as medical lab technology, allow employees to work behind the scenes. Rapid advancements in medical technology made it possible.

Advancement of Medical Technology in India 

For a long time, technology and medicine have coexisted. Numerous lives have been saved thanks to ongoing improvements in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. What medical advances will occur next is impossible to predict as time progresses and healthcare technology progresses. The top 5 new medical innovations for 2022 are listed below:

  1. Neurotechnology: Neurotechnology has the potential to enhance numerous aspects of life. Beyond the health and wellness sectors, where it is already in use, it has various possible future uses in various contexts, including education, business management, public safety, and even sports.

Neurotechnology includes all components designed to comprehend the brain, see its functions, and even manage, correct, or improve brain activity.

Computers, electrodes, or any other device configured to stop electric pulses travelling through the body can be used to create these components through neurotechnology.

  1. 3D Printing: 3D printing is among the most trending technologies available. These ground-breaking medical printers can create joints and implants that might be utilised during surgery.

Since 3D-printed prosthetics are entirely customised and can be made to match a person's specifications, they are becoming increasingly popular. Unprecedented levels of comfort and movement are made possible by this innovation.

The application of 3D printing to clinical evaluation is also growing in popularity. Using a lifelike replica of a genuine patient's anatomy has enabled surgeons to attempt surgeries they previously would have never been able to do.

  1. Health wearables: Insideables and implantables are now being created, demonstrating that technological development is not limited to externally worn devices. These inside microcomputers have so far been employed to support the function of organs like the heart and brain.
    Many believe that insideables, also known as smart pills, are the next stage following external wearables. These come in the shape of a hard capsule that must be ingested and transmit measurements—such as glucose levels—or images from inside the body to help diagnose.
  2. Telemedicine: There has been an increased demand for telehealth and videoconferencing after the Covid-19 pandemic. While telehealth includes remote non-clinical services, telemedicine focuses solely on remote clinical services. 

Jobs in the medical technology field are likely to continue gaining momentum. The international telemedicine industry is expected to increase from $68.36 billion to $218.49 billion through 2026.

  1. Artificial Intelligence: One of the fascinating technologies reshaping the healthcare industry in 2023 is artificial intelligence.

AI is proven to be highly helpful in early disease detection and expediting an accurate diagnosis. AI has shown to be quite helpful in detecting diseases early and speeding up proper diagnosis. For instance, the application of AI in breast cancer therapy allows for a 30 times more rapid and 99% accurate analysis of mammograms, reducing biopsies' dependency.

AI is also being utilised to monitor early-stage heart disease, allowing doctors to spot potentially deadly problems earlier on while they are still treatable.

Job Responsibilities of Biomedical Engineers

Job Responsibilities of Biomedical Engineers

Those who pursue careers as biomedical engineers create biomedical machinery and devices, including artificial internal organs, body part replacements, and tools for identifying medical issues.

A biomedical engineer studies the engineering components of human and animal biological systems with life scientists, chemists, and medical scientists.

Make recommendations based on their study findings, create procedures, compose technical reports, and publish research papers.

Biomedical equipment's safety, effectiveness, and efficiency are assessed by biomedical engineers specialising in quality control.

Biomedical Engineering Jobs in India 

Biomedical Engineering jobs come in a variety of forms for recent graduates. The following list includes information on the main categories of biomedical engineering jobs:

  • Manufacturing Engineers: Prosthetics, imaging technology, and other biomedical items are created and designed by manufacturing engineers.
  • Software engineers: Software engineers analyse customer demands, then design, test, and build computer software to satisfy those needs. They are experts in computer hardware, software, and equipment. They put a lot of effort into creating and designing computer programmes for different medical purposes.
  • Quality Engineers: Biomedical engineers who work in quality assurance validate medical devices. Strictly adhering to industry standards and government norms, they evaluate the quality and functionality of the device.
  • Researchers: They constantly conduct research to understand the healthcare industry's needs and patients' needs to develop new products and diagnostic devices. Some researchers would work as professors in universities, spending time teaching and conducting research. 
  • Physicians: Many graduates with a degree in biomedical engineering choose to attend medical school to become doctors. General practitioners typically work in either public or private hospitals. After a few years of practice, some even open their businesses.

The average compensation for a biomedical engineer in India is 275,000 per year or 141 per hour. While entry-level jobs start at 237,500 annually, the most experienced professionals can make up to 549,375 annually.

A medical technology course seeks to give you the knowledge of the ideas, data, and methods required to evaluate innovative medical solutions critically. 

The course aims to give students an awareness of the analytical techniques required to assess medical technology. 

Those who successfully finish this training will be eligible to become the following (a few job prospects):

    • Lab Technicians: These professionals are adept at conducting several tests, mainly on physiological fluids. These samples are typically sent to a medical lab technician whenever your throat is swabbed, or blood is drawn to check for an infection.

 

  • Phlebotomists: Their main responsibility is assisting with blood collection or giving patients injections. This can entail describing the impending operation and assisting patients who experience negative side effects from this kind of procedure.

 

  • MRI Technicians: These experts are familiar with fundamental anatomy and physiology and cutting-edge imaging technology.

Conclusion 

The future of the healthcare industry is in the hands of biomedical engineers. In earlier days, people travel for miles to get treatment. But today, healthcare services are enhanced with the rapid advancement and emergence of new technologies like artificial intelligence and 5G. Many special equipment has been developed even for domiciliary hospitalisation.

It is no wonder to tell that biomedical technology has attained new heights. To learn this revolutionary technology enrol in Skill-Lync’s medical technology courses curated by leading industry experts. Talk to our experts to learn more about these courses.
