Clinical Engineering Program

Careers

Clinical Engineering is actively involved in education, research and innovative delivery of healthcare technology management (HTM) services. To that end, the Program provides opportunities for students at various levels of their study, as well as for professionals, to work on specific projects, not only for their development, but also for furthering the services of the Program. Generally the projects vary greatly due to the wide range of the HTM practices or portfolios. They can vary from specific technological solution (e.g. surgical instruments, diagnostic image quality and implantable devices) to innovation in systems (e.g. risk management, database and device integration) and processes (e.g. acquisition, service optimization and prioritization).

Fellowship

This program is meant for visiting researchers/scholars/scientists to work on specific projects within one or more of our health technology management portfolios. Fellows may be invited based on the needs of a specific research project and their expertise. Applications for fellowship are open to Canadian and international applicants. Applicants are encouraged to seek funding as Clinical Engineering may not always have full funding. Please contact us for information.

Internship

The Program provides internship for working professionals or those who have just graduated to expose them to the various aspects of healthcare technology management practices. Since internship is meant to facilitate organizational capacity-building, it may be tailored to a specific HTM practice if that is the intern’s requirement or may cover all HTM practices. This is open to Canadian and international applicants. Applicants are encouraged to seek funding as Clinical Engineering may not always have full funding for internship. Co-funded internship may be possible. Please contact us for information on qualification requirements, funding and available opportunities.

Co-op program

We provide opportunities for co-op students from various universities and colleges across Canada and abroad. This program exposes students to the various aspects of Clinical Engineering while they participate in a research project. This provides them with practical experience and as well knowledge in applied research. If there are no listed projects, please feel free to contact us for any projects that may still be in the pipeline.

Students

From time to time, the Clinical Engineering Program provides students with an opportunity to carry out short term research projects. These projects can be entirely within Clinical Engineering or can be through some of our collaborators, such as the University of Manitoba engineering faculty or the University of Manitoba Innovative Design for Engineering Applications (UofM IDEA) Program. Please contact us for information.

CMMS Usability Assessment

The Clinical Engineering program uses a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) to manage our services. CE is continuously modifying the CMMS to adapt to changing work flows and minimizing the burden of data entry on technologists, while maximizing the meaningfulness of the data. To support future, evidence-informed development of the CMMS the successful applicant will conduct a systematic review of selected elements of its user interface. They will assess the usability of the system and make recommendations for its improvement.

Qualifications:

  • Enrolled full time in a university engineering, business, or other related program is required.
  • Extensive experience with Microsoft office in general, and Microsoft Access in particular is preferred.
  • Experience with user-centered design and applying human factors principles is preferred.

Equipment Replacement Planning

The Clinical Engineering program uses a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) to manage our services. CE is continuously using this database to document work orders, monitor equipment status and recommend equipment for replacement. We are working to maximize the meaningfulness of the data to support long-range planning and decision making. The successful applicant will conduct an audit of equipment that is both supported and not supported in-house, develop benchmark reports on failure rates, uptime and cost of support.  They will assess the functionality of the present worksheets and make recommendations for its improvement.

Qualifications:

  • Enrolled full time in a university engineering, science or other related program is required.
  • Extensive experience with Microsoft office in general, and Microsoft Access in particular is preferred.
