2018 Global Clinical Engineering Day





Dear All:

The 3rd Global Clinical Engineering Day will be celebrated again on October 21, 2018. Countries will be submitting updates, videos and stories, recognizing the important contributions of clinical engineers around the world. Tell your colleagues, friends, policy makers and neighbors about this and show them the evidence from many countries who join this celebration. See many country/organization reports from 2017 on the Table below. Links to the 2018 country presentations will be coming in October.
