BTS Program Featured in National Magazine

bts-programMCC BTS Program Coordinator Joey Jones is pictured with the current issue of the 24x7 magazine in the BTS lab.HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (6/2/14) — The Biomedical Technology Systems program at Madisonville Community College was recently featured in the May 2014 edition of the nationally recognized magazine 24x7 for its holistically designed curriculum.

The BTS program trains students how to repair, maintain, and manage all types of medical devices, equipment, and systems utilized in various healthcare sectors. The holistic curriculum looks not only at the medical technology itself but also at the environmental “external” factors which impact the operation and performance of the technology over its entire life cycle.

Besides its holistic approach to the overall care and safety of medical equipment and systems, the MCC’s BTS program has several other unique features:

  • It is the only public program of its type in Kentucky with only around 74 programs nationwide.

  • It is highly accessible with its online delivery and one-day-a-week lab sessions.

  • It has 6 embedded certificates in the Associate in Applied Science degree option that give graduates added employability status.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics provided by the US Department of Labor, the job outlook for the occupation of “medical equipment repairer” is projected to grow 30 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. Greater demand for healthcare services and the use of increasingly complex medical equipment will drive employment growth. Those who have an associate’s degree in biomedical equipment technology or engineering would have the best job opportunities.

To find out more about the BTS program and/or schedule an appointment, contact Joey Jones at (270) 824-1759 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
