Biomedical Technician Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Biomedical Technician in San Francisco:
"Stay away from UCSF Medical Center."
The job of a Biomedical Equipment Technician is a very rewarding one. It provides an exposure to a broad spectrum of high tech medical equipment requiring expertise in electronics, computers, applications, medical terminology and customer service. What I wish I knew about the job, especially the position at UCSF Medical Center, is that there is a huge amount of administrative work (the data entry involved in documenting everything you do every day) added to a very dysfunctional working environment. It's not unlike having to fill out this survey. Though I could go on for hours about the environment at UCSF, suffice it to say that the salary is not worth the sacrifices to your personal ethics you would have to make. The main point about becoming a Biomedical Equipment Technician is that it provides a very challenging career path with many rewards. My only suggestion is that you stay far away from UCSF Medical Center if you decide to pursue this career path.
