The Spring 2012 MediSend Biomedical Repair Training Program™ Sends Graduating Biomedical Technicians to Hospitals Around the World

(PRWEB) June 21, 2012

On June 8th, MediSend International held graduation ceremonies for biomedical technician trainees from hospitals in Nigeria, Kazakhstan, Papua New Guinea, Haiti and Peru. They had the unique opportunity to train in the MediSend Biomedical Repair Training Program™, thanks to generous grants from foundations and sponsors such as ExxonMobil, National Cancer Coalition, International Child Care and National Medical Holding of Kazakhstan.

MediSend’s intensive BMET curriculum returns the trainees to their hospitals as professional biomedical repair technicians in six months. With their new skills and experience, the MediSend graduates will provide desperately needed support to doctors, nurses and healthcare workers, and provide guidance on how to properly use complex biomedical equipment.

“We train these individuals as professionals with the ability to raise standards and improve conditions in their hospitals. They learn how to set and reach goals,” says Dr. Costel Rizescu, Vice President of Biomedical Technologies at MediSend. “Many of our trainees have never been out of their own countries. At MediSend, they learn to work as a team with fellow trainees from diverse cultures and backgrounds. They all return home saying that the experience has been life-changing.”

As part of the Program, MediSend returns each graduate technician to his or her hospital with a MediSend Mobile Biomedical Equipment Test and Repair Kit™. The Kit contains over 4000 laboratory supply items, including essential repair tools and state-of-the-art test and calibration equipment typically unavailable in developing-country hospitals, enabling the technicians to begin accomplishing critical tasks immediately.

Graduates of the Spring 2012 MediSend Biomedical Repair Training Program™ have returned home to join previous MediSend graduates as leaders in their hospitals and as ambassadors for change in the quality of healthcare in their communities. MediSend has now returned 88 professionally trained biomedical repair technicians to 15 countries around the world.
