It’s that time of year again. During the week of May 15th-21st, 2022, Biomedical/Clinical Engineering departments coast-to-coast will climb out from the basements of their respected hospitals to be honoured and celebrated for the annual National Biomedical/Clinical Engineering Appreciation week. ACCES will once again be participating in the festivities with our annual photo contest.
Hello ACCES, the first thing that I would like to say is Happy New Year to everyone and let us hope for a better 2022 than 2021, although we have started out on the wrong foot.
Unfortunately, once again the ACCES25 conference had to be cancelled. It was a tough call...

Now that we discussed this upcoming photo contest for CE week in 2022, it’s only right we announce the winners from the 2021 photo contest, which took place during the week of May 16th – 22nd, 2021. The criteria were pretty simple, snap a picture of your department’s version of celebrating the CE week activities/celebrations – with the ACCES logo visible in the photo.
