Online Courses in Healthcare

Foundation of Healthcare Technologies Society (FHTS), based in New Delhi, is a non-profit organization that integrates multi-sectoral segments through use of innovative informatics platforms for an overall improvement of population health in underserved settings. For further information you can visit us at: http://fhts.ac.in/

We are pleased to inform you that we offer 2 online courses for a duration of 6-months for capacity building in healthcare i.e. Applied Healthcare Informatics Course and Operations Research in Population Health.

The two courses are an Online Live Synchronous Programme with classes taken from international faculty. The programme will help the students to gain in-depth understanding and training in Health Information Technologies. The highlight of our programme is the students needs to have a mandatory research publication in an international peer-reviewed journal under the guidance of highly skilled mentors for the successful completion of the project.

ICMIT 2013-Indian Conference on Medical Informatics and Telemedicine




Indian Conference on Medical Informatics and Telemedicine, ICMIT 2013, will be held at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, during 28 – 30 March, 2013.

Healthcare today is standing at the threshold of a world of possibilities thrown up by the use of information technology. Telemedicine and e-healthcare have emerged as a viable mode for delivering medical care and expertise. The conference aims to bring together technologists and medical professionals involved with research in these areas to exchange ideas and focus on the ways to provide improved healthcare for the benefit of the patients.

Original contributions are solicited for presentation at the conference, ICMIT 2013. All papers will be peer reviewed and accepted papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

BIOSTEC 2013:6th International Joint Conference on Biomedical Engineering Systems and Technologies

6th International Joint Conference on Biomedical Engineering Systems and Technologies(BIOSTEC 2013)

Venue: Barcelona, Spain

Event Date: 11-14 February, 2013

The purpose of BIOSTEC is to bring together researchers and practitioners, including engineers, biologists, health professionals and informatics/computer scientists, interested in both theoretical advances and applications of information systems, artificial intelligence, signal processing, electronics and other engineering tools in knowledge areas related to biology and medicine.
BIOSTEC is composed of four co-located conferences, each specialized in at least one of the aforementioned main knowledge areas.

International Conference on Biomedical Electronics and Devices

International Conference on Bioinformatics

Points to Consider Before applying for Fresher Biomedical Job

You are a biomedical engineering graduate. You already passed the actual licensure evaluation. What’s next? Apply for a biomedical engineering work. Are you nervous that you might get rejected? No worries, here are some tips that may help you get recognized to do the job you wanted.

* Choose the biomedical engineering job opportunities appropriate for you. Where could it be located? Is it necessary to transport to get presently there? The location is very important that you should consider. Think about, are you able to get the job done? You should guarantee your self that you can do the job effectively before you apply. Know the salary and benefits they offer. Review all of your feasible expenses and compare it for your income and benefits. You should generate a lot more than your costs.

PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Linköping University, Sweden

The Department of Biomedical Engineering (www.imt.liu.se) is a national center for research and education within the field of medical technology. The research is based on the needs within health care and is carried out in close cooperation with the medical industry and medical clinics.
Our research group in medical informatics is internationally known, among other things for our work with the development of new theories and algorithms for analysis of multidimensional data.
Successful applications include; analysis of local image structure, adaptive filtering of volume sequences and imaging of
brain activity using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
Currently we have an open position for a PhD student in medical informatics at the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
Background: The aim of medical informatics is to develop general methods in order to find the best representations and presentations of different types of information. We are currently seeking a PhD student in medical informatics, specializing in neuro-economics and multidimensional signal analysis. In neuro-economics, the parts of the brain that are activated at different decisions are studied, with the aim to investigate the neurological mechanisms that govern economic decision making. The analysis of neuro-economic data has some major challenges, thus, to develop and to improve statistical analysis is central to the development of the field of neuro-economics. Work within this new
position will be a part of the research conducted at the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (www.cmiv.liu.se).
