Everything about this field is exciting! I get to play with tools and the latest technology. I get to fix equipment that can have a huge impact on patients. It's an amazing feeling when I fix something and the Doctor/Nurse/Tech gets their diagnostic equipment back so they can get the patient on their healing journey. As a leader, I get to help guide the team in doing their very best, every day."" title="Biomedical Equipment Technology II Proficiency Certificate
