I understand the bioscience position, however this does not directly apply to an engineering degree, and I've heard few recruits are accepted per year! If I was to commit to graduate studies, it would be preferably towards an M.D. in medicine and in pursuit of becoming a med officer, rather than the bioscience route.
I was avoiding the technologist as well as they do not require the bachelor's in engineering. I was looking for a job that relates to the degree (Such as the mechanical engineering/electrical eng officer position.)
Thank you for the input thus far! I appreciate it.

I thought I posted this yesterday but I couldn't find it anywhere so I thought it glitched! Thank you, I will remove that post!

Working in health care as an engineer

Hi,

I am in my final year of electrical engineering. I want to join the Reserve right now and then transfer to the regular force in August 2019. Looking at the different jobs, I was very interested in the ''Biomedical Electronics Technologist''. Could I get some advice on what I should apply on right now and the transfer to regular force if I am looking to work as an engineer in health care.

Cheers

To apply for entry as a BMet Tech, you require a Diploma of Technology in Biomedical Engineering from a recognized Canadian institution.

Let me rephrase my question. I am completing an electrical engineering degree and I am looking for a job in the health care reserve before transferring to the regular force next year. What jobs should I look for?

Unless you are already a trained and licenced health professional (e.g. physician, nurse, paramedic, etc) the only medical job in the Reserves is Medical Assistant.

You may wish to consider Electro-Mechanical Engineer (EME) Officer. Our BMet Techs are trained to maintain biomedical equipment, with the educational requirements that PMed Moe has outlined.

Quickly weighing in as a Health Services Recruiter.

All the information given to you here is correct; in addition to a Reservist (other than MedA) needing to be qualified in the occupation already - many of the Health Services Occupations are Regular Force only.  If you're looking at the PRes you likely will want to review non-Health Service Occupations that may interest you.
