Development and Evaluation of Educational Programs in Biomedical Equipment Technology. Final Report.
Technical Education Research Center, Cambridge, MA.
The report describes the Biomedical Equipment Technology project carried out by Technical Education Research Centers between 1967 and 1974. The project developed a curriculum and a program for training biomedical equipment technicians in two-year schools. The report discusses the three phases of the project: development of pilot programs, coordinated program development, and dissemination and implementation. Details are provided on the development of a curriculum guide, the development and testing of instructional modules (17 modules in medical electronics and instrumentation are described briefly in an appendix), the development and dissemination of the educational program, and the internal and external evaluation of the project. Appendixes comprise approximately half of the report and include: a summary of project goals and materials developed; a description of the field trials of the medical electronics and instrumentation modules; lists of institutions, business, and industries involved in the project; figures on the dissemination of project products; and reprints of three relevant articles.
