Abstract:Placement of education, knowledge production and innovation are at the heart of growth processes. Strategic responsiveness of states to face various global challenges has always been to develop and exploit knowledge-based academia. Strategic inference enables the realization of fusion of innovation –technological or social – is critical in the global competitiveness environment. The state which is capable to develop consistent network with entities like innovation-research- education may justify further global competitiveness. Innovation may possess various threads like primary sector-agriculture, health, education, social issues etc. Our paper boasts of innovation in educating the gentry in Medical Equipment Technology. The connectivity of Medical technology and it’s Innovation with educational links between the respective universities and their businesses, which will result in successfully commercializing the new knowledge that will survive and thrive in the global economy which would be lucrative for the generations to come in Bahrain .
Bahrain has the oldest public education system in the Arabian Peninsula. Since the 1970s, education has been one of the largest current government expenditures. Bahrain has been at the epitome of educational progress within the region, establishing the Gulf’s first public education system in 1919.
Considering health care and education as prime sector of economy for the country like Bahrain, the medical innovation with technical inputs like equipment, training will certainly raise the bar. This will also enable knowledge population to become skill based professionals. Consequently, consolidated magic knowledge triangle medical innovation – research – education and stimulated industry – enforces knowledge interactions in order to be able to better commercialize the new knowledge. This paper addresses these topics with a special focus on strategy with medical technology innovation on its way to achieving the global knowledge power status. Increasingly, educators have been challenged by the rapid development of new technologies, and the challenges brought forth by the development of new medical technologies are no exception.
The curriculum is designed to assist teachers and course designers in developing medical technology content in schools. We use a clearly organized approach to guide the teachers through the significant historical events of the field, including major technological break-through, and the ethical decisions that physicians and others made as they established the foundation for today’s world of medical technology.
Teachers in science, technology, mathematics, and applied engineering will be benefited and find information in this coursework with direct applications for the school curriculum.
