MedTech is redefining the biomedical technology ecosystem

Visionary medical technology entrepreneurs, engineers and designers are creating innovative solutions that redefine the role technology plays in securing our health and long-term well-being.

About The Industry

Imagine a world where individuals proactively monitor their health on an ongoing basis, entire populations are readily and cost-effectively monitored for cancer risk and early-onset of diseases, smart bandages relieve bedridden patients from the threat of painful pressure ulcers, flexible implantable prosthetics enable spinal cord injury patients to walk again, and human performance awareness technologies make fatigue-induced death and injury for first responders a thing of the past.

The Medical Technology (MedTech) industry creates new exciting products that bring emerging health solutions directly to the user through on-body/in-body diagnostics, flexible/wearable electronics, hand-held or portable sensors, and devices for rehabilitation and enhanced human performance.

Types of careers: Careers in this field include product designers; engineers, scientists, and technologists; medical practitioners and technicians; business professionals and entrepreneurs; computer scientists, data analysts, and software developers; and high-tech manufacturers.

Most occupations in this industry require an associate’s degree or equivalent, although specific designations range from less than a high school diploma and short-term on-the-job training for occupations such as production worker helpers to a bachelor’s or advanced degree and long-term on-the-job training for highly specialized electronics device processing and managerial positions.
