2018 Global Clinical Engineering Day





To all Colleagues around the world:

Global Clinical Engineering Day was initiated as celebration of the important contributions that clinical engineering professionals are making every day around the world. By celebrating we recognize you and also promote recognition for our profession and our role in improving patient care outcomes.

Like years past, the event held on October 21st and started in China and moved around the globe like the Olympic torch passes prior to the summer games. Every year we have enjoyed larger participation, however, this year we broke all records. Not only about 600 folks participated in the event in Chengdu, China, but in addition a record of 316,385 watchers followed us on the live streaming video and 94,900 “Likes” were recorded. In addition, nearly 40 countries contributed their own content and shared their stories with the world.

Thank you for taking the time and effort to produce good content and add your message thus turning the torch into an inferno. To better accommodate future participation growth, we may need to expand the GCED to Global CE week.
