Core Competencies for the HTM Entry-Level Technician

AAMI has released an updated guide to the functional and personal competencies—and related academic topics—that HTM graduates need to master to be fully prepared for employment in the HTM field. These skills and knowledge were compiled by a committee of experts from academia, healthcare delivery organizations, independent service organizations, industry, the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Veterans Administration, and others.

The primary objective of Core Competencies for the HTM Entry-Level Technician: A Guide for Curriculum Development in Academic Institutions is to provide academic institutions with the information necessary to develop and validate their curricula; however, students can use the guide to ensure they have everything employers expect in entry-level employees,

“Students can use this information to make sure they have the tools and skills that employers are looking for,” Yelton, an HTM professor at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, said. “They may find that there are areas where they are lacking and choose to take additional coursework while they are still in college. This is very valuable information that would be hard for them to obtain on their own.”
