Staffing, Training, and Development

Investing in Your Clinical Engineering Team

Biomedical equipment technicians are the heart of medical device maintenance and optimization. Their skills and knowledge have an immense impact on the daily clinical operations of any health system. A well-staffed and trained clinical engineering program is an absolute priority but requires a significant investment.

What if you could utilize an on-site clinical engineering team with comprehensive, ongoing training, a team that scales to fit your health system’s needs while maintaining consistent and predictable costs? TRIMEDX's ongoing technical and leadership training programs equip biomedical equipment technicians to manage evolving technologies and grow their contributions to our health system partners. From device repair and maintenance and capital planning expertise to cybersecurity specialists, each associate is trained and knowledgeable in their field.

All Aspects of Human Resource Management

TRIMEDX actively recruits through a network of talented industry professionals for all clinical engineering roles within client health systems. Access to this network, coupled with a highly competitive compensation and benefits package, helps reduce the time to fill open positions. Once the TRIMEDX team is in place within a client health system, we assume all resource planning, performance monitoring & management, and a dedicated reporting structure is established to drive performance and success metrics. Health systems can deploy this on-site model to improve device availability even during large-scale emergency scenarios that bring large fluctuations in patient demand and potentially threaten access to external services.

AAMI BMET Apprenticeship program
sponsored by TRIMEDX

TRIMEDX invests in the next generation of clinical engineering talent through a BMET apprenticeship program, launched in 2022 in partnership with the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI). AAMI’s BMET Apprenticeship is recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor and combines traditional education with up to 6,000 hours of on-the-job learning. Apprentices work for 24 months with an expert team of TRIMEDX Biomedical Equipment Technicians (BMETs), gaining valuable on-the-job training and experience. Participants also have extensive education requirements including anatomy, medical terminology, physiology, and other related courses. The cost of these collegiate-level courses is covered by TRIMEDX, and the program provides a pathway to a career in clinical engineering for people who have little to no experience or non-traditional backgrounds. The goal is to create a long-term career trajectory for the apprentices and ensure they are eligible for an advanced BMET position by the time they finish the two-year program.

Partnerships That Build Associate Skills

TRIMEDX associates have access to the industry’s leading skills-building program and deliver the value of these trainings to our health system partners.
