BIOMEDICAL DEGREE IN PAKISTAN: AN INSIGHT

Maria Shahzadi, Muhammad Bilal

Abstract


Among all the multidisciplinary fields, biomedical is the fastest growing. Its diversified skills in biological as well as engineering sciences makes it a unique pillar of the any healthcare unit to create unique solutions while pertaining to healthcare standards. However, in Pakistan, the importance of biomedical field was recognized later.1 Here are several causes for this. First, we mix biomedical degree with pure medical science, and second, all relevant vacancies in Pakistan are filled by electronics and electrical engineers. It would be difficult to underline the importance of biomedical graduates in Pakistan without defining their employment positions and duties. Many companies who are working with biomedical equipment, in particular, have begun to provide special vacancies and quotas for biomedical graduates to emphasize the importance of biomedical field and to give it equal merit like all other fields.
