Excerpts from the desk of Industry Experts:

Mr. Tushar N Pistolwala
CS Modality Manager- Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Siemens Ltd
There is a huge growth potential in the sector of health care due to Shortage of medical care in rural areas and ultramodern clinic complexes in the big cities in India. Rising income levels, ageing population, growing health awareness and changing attitude towards preventive healthcare is expected to boost healthcare services demand in future.

According to India’s Planning Commission, more than two-thirds of the country’s population of roughly
1.2 billion people live in rural areas – exactly where there is still a serious shortage of basic medical care. There is immense scope for enhancing healthcare services penetration in India. This presents ample opportunity for development of the healthcare industry which means there will be demand for Biomedical Engineers to cater to this rapidly growing sector.

Mr. Prashant Kamarikar, CEO,
Pacific Aesthetic India Pvt. Ltd
Biomedical Engineers are in demand at research and development organizations, medical equipment manufacturing companies, state of art hospitals, teaching institutions, and well established corporates like GE, Wipro, Siemens, L & T, ECIL, SCL, and BEL. There are also ample opportunities for carrying out advanced research in universities abroad. There are diverse areas and fields, in which they can work. They can work in areas like medical equipments manufacturing, molecular, cellular and tissue engineering as Clinical Engineers, Biomechanics Engineer, Bioinstrumentation Engineer, Business Managers, Professors, Research Scientists, Technical Writers, Systems Physiology Engineers, etc.

With the increase in population, the number of people who require healthcare facilities is on the rise. So, there is immense scope of Biomedical Engineers in the times to come. There is very high demand for professionals in healthcare in countries outside India.

Meeta Ruparel , Director/ Proprietor,
AUM MEDITEC, Mumbai, India.
I started a techno-entrepreneurship consultancy service organization “AUM MEDITEC” in 1999. We have been rendering consultancy services in Healthcare management and bio-medical management systems.
There is a huge demand for biomedical engineers in India. The work profiles vary from monitoring and maintaining the medical equipment in hospitals to working in Bio-medical device industry in a job profile of sales & marketing management, product application specialists, servicing of medical equipment, etc.

India has come a long way; with manufacturing set up expansions now being expanded in India; golden opportunities also await in medical device manufacturing job profiles and in Research & Development areas. Immense job opportunities also exist in diverse spheres like IT in healthcare and computer hardware & software applications to integrate medical devices for easy and comfort in usability.

Allow me to narrate an interesting conversation I had with a renowned surgeon in Mumbai, about 45 days ago; we were discussing medical robot applications and the doctor commented “The time is not far when Bio-Medical Engineers would be doing all the surgery work and we surgeons will just watch and monitor the proceedings” This is the extent of advancement in Medical engineering and the demand graph for bio-medical engineers in India is observing only an upward trend!
