Developing a framework for establishment of Biomedical Engineering Department (MTA) in developing regions
The Biomedical Engineering Department (MTA) at Karolinska University Hospital is becoming a driving force in applying biomedical engineering, telemedicine and e-health best practices in developing regions. The projects driven by MTA are both national and international in nature with partners from many countries.
One of the long-term goals of the department is to create a testbed environment where new emerging technologies can be developed, evaluated and implemented both in industrialized and developing regions.
To be able to reach this long-term goal, the department is seeking to develop partnership programs together with both the academia and the industry. Involving students, researchers and industry professionals creates a win-win situation, where its possible for the academia to get access to a research field within the area of applied Biomedical Engineering, Telemedicine and e-Health, the IT- and biomedical professionals to develop new products and services, and the hospital to get access to high value-added competence and creating new opportunities for emerging and innovative solutions benefiting both the patients and the hospital.
Thesis work is oriented to 1 or 2 master level students within the field of biomedical engineering, management of biomedical equipments or similar.
Students will be investigating and developing a framework for establishing Biomedical Engineering Department (MTA) in developing regions. As a case study, Central Asian country – Tajikistan will be taken into account.
Scope of the thesis work will include following points:
- Investigate and develop best practices in establishing cost-efficient and effective MTA in Tajikistan
- Define best practice organizational structure for MTA in Tajikistan
- Develop guidelines for best practice maintenance, management, support and purchase of medical equipments for MTA in Tajikistan
- Define usage areas of Information Technology at MTA organizational processes
- Find out sustainable long term cooperation between MTA in Sweden and in Tajikistan
Candidates should have major in biomedical engineering, management of information systems, or similar. Previous experience in working with biomedical engineering issues is an advantage, but not a necessity.
Please send your updated and relevant CV to contact person until 19th of May. Potential applicants will be invited for interview during the end of May and beginnings of June. The thesis work can start immediately after decision, or can be discussed, but not later then September 2006.
