Tanzanian government admits lack of Biomedical engineers

TANZANIA faces acute shortage of Biomedical Engineers (BMEs), with 7,000 experts needed to handle medical equipment in the country.

Deputy Minister of Education, Science, Technology and Vocational Training William Ole Nasha, speaking here during his tour of educational institutions in the region, said the government was relying on technical training outfits like the Arusha Technical College (ATC) and Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology (DIT) to rescue the situation.

The biomedical engineer is a professional for design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of medical equipment in hospitals. But, many local hospitals have resorted to electrical and electronic engineers to man their biomedical equipment due to shortage of BMEs.
