The Evolution of Clinical Engineering: Adapting to Todays’ Healthcare
ACCES Trade Show Registration Site - NOW OPEN
The Atlantic Canada Clinical Engineering Society (ACCES) is proud to invite you to exhibit at the 22nd Annual Atlantic Canada Clinical Engineering Educational Seminars and Trade Expo.
2016 Biomedical and Clinical Engineering Week Photo Contest Winners
Biomedical and Clinical Engineering departments across Atlantic Canada celebrated the Biomedical and Clinical Engineering Week last year from May 22-28, 2016. As part of the celebrations, ACCES launched a photo-contest to all its registered members, with a special theme: “When healthcare meets technology”.
The criteria were simple: snap a picture of Biomedical and Clinical Engineering week activities or celebrations – with the ACCES logo somewhere in the photo. We were quite surprised with the creativity, smiles, and cakes in this year’s submissions. In the end, the judges were finally able to agree on three winning submissions for this year:
Spotlight On Our Members
This Spotlight article features a member from Saint John, New Brunswick, where another of Clinical Engineering’s veterans resides, Bertram McDonald, or who we all know as Bert.
Bert grew up with nine brothers and sisters in Prince of Whales, not a spot located somewhere in Scotland, but a community just a stone’s throw from Musquash NB, where he attended the proverbial one room “little red school house” from grades one to three. With the closure of many rural schools he would finish grades 4 through 9 by taking the short drive to West Saint John where he graduated from Saint John Vocational High School.
Passing of Marcel Landry
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of one of our past members: Marcel Landry from Bas-Cap-Pelé, New Brunswick. Marcel passed away on December 29, 2016.
Warmest thoughts and best wishes for a wonderful holiday and a very happy new year, from the ACCES Executive team!
Message from ACCES President
Hello ACCES Members,
For those who do not know me, my name is Brett Fraser and I am currently into my first term as President of ACCES. Working closely with the ACCES Executive Committee, I am eager to try and make ACCES a more informative community for Biomeds (Clinical Engineering Technologists and professionals), not only in Atlantic Canada, but to any members or non-members interested in the Society. I believe it is very important for us to answer the question “what is the benefit of being an ACCES member”.
