The Technical Services Partnership at the University of Vermont has been offering biomed work experiences to students for over 40 years. Today, a full online course sequence is available to train those with a technical or clinical background in biomedical technology. This sequence, combined with a new formal internship framework and a developing appreentice program, has molded career changers into productive BMET staff. The opportunities, process education and mentoring to develop BMET staff from diverse backgrounds will be presented in an interactive session.
