The interviewer would like to know your thoughts regarding the advancements or remote and robotic diagnostics. As a biomedical technician, you need to show your value and that you aren't afraid that remote diagnostic will replace your job.
"That's a great question! Robotics is advancing very quickly so if that should happen; I plan to get in on the action and learn more about the actual programming of the robotic diagnostics. Manuals still need to be written, and code provided, for this to happen. My knowledge will always be valuable."
"There is always that chance that remote diagnostics will replace me. This outcome could be said for nearly any job. I prefer to focus on how I can be the best in my field, build professional relationships and show my supervisors that they have a great technician working for them. That personal effect is something remote diagnostics will never be able to replace."
"Over the ten years that I have been a biomedical technician, I have seen huge advancements in technology and diagnostics. I know that one day this will likely happen; however, subject matter experts will always be in demand for professional reference and manual writing, for instance. These advancements are exciting and do not concern me."
