The recent Webinar Wednesday session “Tech Toolbox and the Future of Biomed” was presented by Justin Barbour, BMET and host of Better Biomed YouTube Channel; Edgardo Bautista, biomedical support engineer and host of D.I.Y Eddie YouTube Channel; and Jason Kluttz, technician and owner of Bright Idea Dental Repair. It was sponsored by MedWrench and eligible for 1 credit from the ACI.
In the webinar, the expert panel covered a variety of topics, including an outlook of the career field, examination of training methods, the benefits of a YouTube channel, as well as answered multiple questions from the live and engaging audience.
One attendee asked, “Where do you get inspiration for your YouTube channel?”
“Every day,” answered Barbour. “Every single day I experience something new and something I wish I had known a couple of years ago. People are hungry for information, and that’s what drives me to make these videos.”
In regards to the future, Kluttz stated, “And, you know, if we’re talking about the future of the biomed, the future involves bringing in people that are going to be less knowledgeable, that are going to be kind of that bright-eyed, young guy that doesn’t know anything, and we’ve got to be patient and not push them away. But we’ve gotta really, like, embrace them.”
Other questions included, “As a biomed working in hospitals, do you think we will be replaced by companies, reps or techs in the future?” “What other websites or platforms do you use if you can’t find answers on YouTube?” “Are there any risks or liabilities that you share when you create videos?”
More than 200 individuals registered for the webinar. Attendees provided feedback via a survey after the webinar. The survey included the question, “What did you enjoy the most about this webinar?”
”Honest content that was not selling me anything! It’s great to hear from fellow biomeds. We are often out there alone and do not get a chance to interact with our colleagues as often as we would like,” said C. Yovino, field service supervisor.
“Their interaction and knowledge. Great presentation and explanation of experience,” added L. Clifford, area manager.
