Uptraining BMETs: Solving the Imaging Engineer Shortage from Within

Over the last few years, imaging directors and managers have become increasingly aware of the rapidly growing shortage of qualified imaging engineers. This has already created two distinct challenges for those hoping to hire additional engineers. On one hand, because of the high demand, most candidates are already employed. That can make it prohibitively expensive to entice them to leave their current position. Plus, it can be difficult to retain existing staff because competing companies are working diligently to recruit them as well.

On the other hand, biomedical professionals who want to pursue imaging engineering to advance their careers quickly discover there’s very little opportunity for training. Colleges don’t offer degree programs for imaging engineering, so when these individuals were students, counselors weren’t advising them to pursue this particular career path. It just doesn’t exist in the academic world. Qualified imaging engineers were likely trained in the military or previously worked for an OEM. The result is that many biomedical professionals are now stuck in their role.
