The Clinical Engineering Division of the International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE/CED), chaired by Ernesto Iadanza in the period 2015–18, has done its part in advancing clinical engineering in Italy by having many contacts and participations in Italian events and conferences in the last years.

Abstract

The Clinical Engineering Division of the International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE/CED), chaired by Ernesto Iadanza in the period 2015–18, has done its part in advancing clinical engineering in Italy by having many contacts and participations in Italian events and conferences in the last years. To further confirm this, the third edition of the International Conference of Clinical Engineering and Health Technology Management (ICEHTMC, 2019, http://www.icehtmc.com) will be held in Rome in October 2019, in combination with the Global Clinical Engineering Day (October 21). There is no doubt that today Italy is having a big impact on the worldwide clinical engineering, for example, also exporting at European Union level its coding system for medical devices. Very good signals arrive from academia, with more and more students choosing this path and with excellent figures in their placement after graduation. Nevertheless, there is still a lot to do—both on the legislative level and on the organizational level—before seeing a clinical engineer sitting at all the tables of healthcare top managers.
