Subject: Bioengineering Job Opportunity
Importance: High




I would like to make you aware of an exciting opportunity for graduating Biomedical Engineers. The Biomedical Engineer Technical Career Field (TCF) positions were posted to on 3/1/2021. The posting can be found on USAJOBS at It will stay active until 3/15/2021.


The TCF program is a national workforce development program within the Department of Veterans Affairs, the aim of which is to help replenish technical staff in critically identified positions. Individuals selected follow a formal training plan for two years during which they are trained, coached, and supervised by a preceptor. Preceptors are selected annually, through an extensive application process, for their technical expertise, commitment to training, and the suitability of their facility as a training location. Selectees will be required to sign Mobility, Training, and Continued Service Agreements.

Job duties for the Biomedical Engineering TCFs include evaluating medical equipment, managing the medical equipment maintenance program, and coordinating new medical technology implementations. Throughout the training program, the selectee will develop abilities to effectively support and advance patient care by applying both engineering and managerial skills to healthcare technology. While developing these skills, the selectee will receive assignments to prepare for higher-level management and leadership responsibilities. Promotion potential exists to the highest levels within the Biomedical (Clinical) Engineering career field. Career advancement can take TCF graduates to all regions of the country and toward numerous healthcare leadership roles.
