The AAMI Foundation promotes the advancement of healthcare technology related professionals through scholarships and awards. By supporting these programs, you are helping more students enter the healthcare technology field. At a time of when technology is changing rapidly and the workforce is aging, these scholarship programs are vitally important to ensure that healthcare technology continues to be both safe and effective in the future. We have the following scholarships and award programs to support:
Healthcare Technology management (HTM)
Healthcare technology management (HTM) professionals are vital members of any world-class healthcare delivery team. Biomedical equipment technicians and clinical engineers play a vital role in healthcare by working to ensure that medical devices and related systems are safe and reliable—and always ready for use in life-saving situations. (For more information on the HTM profession see click here)
Every year, the AAMI Foundation awards the Michael J. Miller Scholarship to students aspiring to become biomedical equipment technicians, clinical engineers, and health systems engineers. These scholarships expand access to students who have demonstrated academic excellence, technical aptitude, and a commitment to healthcare technology and patient safety.
