The Medical Education and Training Campus (METC), a United States Department of Defense (DoD) integrated campus under a single university-style administration, at Joint Base San Antonio on Fort Sam Houston, Texas celebrated Healthcare Technology Management (HTM) Week by promoting the awareness and appreciation for the critical work of biomedical equipment technicians (BMETs), clinical engineers and other members of the healthcare technology management field. The celebration was built around the theme “The Founders and the Future: 71 Years of HTM Excellence.” The initial kickoff consisted of an Esprit de Corps Fun Run with Army, Air Force and Navy tri-service. This catapulted into multiple breakfasts and lunches throughout the week to build unit and team cohesion. The staff participated in two career fairs at the STEM Expo representing the organization. The team also coordinated multiple BMET program tours for high school students and vendors from across the nation. A conventional vendor fair for over 500 BMETs, clinical engineers and other members of the healthcare technology management field provided an opportunity to learn about different vendors. They showcased new products, technologies and equipment, then coordinated guest speakers from different organizations to provide education and background of their operations. The BMET program finalized the HTM Week celebration with a BBQ/potluck luncheon.
