Biomedical Equipment Technclogy: A Curriculum Planning Resource Guide.
Spetz, Sally H.
This curriculum resource guide, one of seven developed by the State of Illinois to present information on new and emerging curricula existing in the nation, can be used as a basis for local educators to determine the resources needed to offer biomedical equipment technician curricula and to initiate curriculum development at the local level. Chapters 1 and 2 contain an introduction and procedures for using the guide. Chapter 3 describes the job duties and typical employers of biomedical equipment technicians. In chapter 4 alternative curriculum approaches are presented--an associate degree program, certificate program, and electronics option. Chapter 5 discusses these resources required to implement the program: curriculum advisory committee, facilities and equipment, and instructor qualifications. The final chapter contains thirty-nine abstracts of curriculum and instructional materials; information provided includes title, author(s), availability, and price. Appendixes include lists of schools offering coursework in biomedical equipment technology and related agencies/organizations and journals/periodicals, task listings and job competencies, certification of biomedical equipment technicians, and equipment lists and inventories. (A report on the project that identified the seven new and emerging occupations is available as CE 025 423. See Note for other curriculum resource guides in ERIC.) (YLB)
