A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed among Andhra Pradesh MedTech Zone (AMTZ), Quality Council of India (QCI) and Association of Indian Manufacturers of Medical Devices (AIMED) to form Indian Bio-medical Skill Consortium (IBSC).
The MoU was signed by Dr. Jitendar Sharma (MD & CEO, AMTZ), Dr. Ravi P. Singh (Secretary General, QCI) and Mr. Rajiv Nath (Forum Coordinator, AIMED)
Indian Bio-medical Skill Consortium (IBSC) was formed recently with the aim to strengthen biomedical skill sector in the country. Andhra Pradesh MedTech Zone (AMTZ), Quality Council of India (QCI) and Association of Indian Manufacturers of Medical Devices (AIMED), joined hands to form the Consortium which proposes to develop a value-based assessment covering educational training, work experience and competency possessed by practitioners of biomedical engineering skills.
A large number of assessment centers are planned across the country where the proficiency test would be organized.
The competency test on key bio-medical engineering skills would be undertaken by practitioners of bio-medical engineering from mechanical, electronic, electrical, health, IT, clinical and allied engineering subjects.
On the basis of that, a competency score would be framed on parity with other such professional bodies in other countries.
This equivalence score will help the Indian biomedical skill pool to gain formal recognition and acceptance of their experience and knowledge in other countries.
