Clinical Engineering and Management is a sub-discipline of Biomedical Engineering and it concerns the design and management of Biomedical Technology systems and equipment. Clinical Engineering programme is an innovative approach of combining formal engineering with clinical exposure. The study of Clinical Engineering comprises of a broad array of diagnostic and therapeutic applications. This branch of Engineering and Sciences is a fascinating multidisciplinary area of study that entails the application of engineering techniques in order to assist practitioners like doctors and physicians in their healthcare practices. Faculty of Healthcare Administration, IGMPI designed this course especially for professionals who support and advance patient care by applying engineering and management skills to healthcare technology or those who are seeking such job roles.

The Institute has partnered with many organizations for providing with placement assistance to in its participants. Besides, it has a robust placement cell comprised of senior level Human Resources professionals and Talent Acquisition experts which maintains close links with business and industry. This cell is continuously engaged in promoting the employability of our participants and encouraging the concerned Human Resources department and Hiring Managers to recruit/hire our participants for their vacant positions. The efforts of our placement cell also include helping with professional resume writing & interview skills.
In recent months the Institute has witnessed more and more participation from professionals working with global pharmaceutical and healthcare Companies like Siemens healthcare, Johnson & Johnson, Medtronic, Drager,Fresenius Medical Care, Samsung Healthcare, Roche Diagnostics, Hamilton, cedilla healthcare, Piramal enterprises, Religare health insurance, Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories, AurobindoPharma, Glenmark Generics, Cipla, Wockhardt, Pfizer, Abbott, Foster Corporation, Ipca Laboratories, Bliss GVS Pharma, Al Rawabi, SeQuent, PepsiCo India, Mankind, CFTRI, Ciron, Sun Pharmaceutical, Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline, Ranbaxy, Biocon etc.
Healthcare has increasingly become technology driven and requires trained manpower to keep pace with the growing demand for professionals in the field. An important aspect of this course is simultaneous, long term and detailed exposure to clinical environment as well as to medical device development activity. This is aimed at making students understand the process of identifying unmet clinical needs and thus, contributing to the development of new medical devices. Roles of clinical engineers include training and supervising biomedical equipment technicians (BMETs), working with governmental regulators on hospital inspections/audits, and serving as technological consultants for other hospital staff (i.e. physicians, administrators, IT, etc.).Clinical engineers also advise medical device producers regarding prospective design improvements based on clinical experiences, as well as monitor the progression of the state-of-the-art in order to redirect hospital procurement patterns accordingly.
