Vice President - Jake Urben, CBET

I graduated from Milwaukee Area Technical College in May of 2005 with an associate degree in Biomedical Electronics Technology.

My career started as an Electronics Technician with the Wisconsin Physical Sciences Laboratory in Stoughton, WI, which allowed me to build equipment for the IceCube Neutrino Detector at the South Pole Station in Antarctica and CERN’s Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland. In September of 2010, I left PSL and began my biomed career with UW Health in Madison, WI. I spent the next 5 years working in the Clinical Engineering department and helped manage all aspects of biomed operations. In August of 2016, I decided to leave Wisconsin and move to the great state of Colorado to begin working for HSS where I manage biomed operations in Northern Colorado, Kansas, Wyoming, Nebraska, and Oregon.

In January of 2019, I travelled to Kathmandu, Nepal with a team of surgeons to provide biomed assistance at the Kirtipur Cleft and Burn Center.

Through my time with HSS, I have received my CBET certification and actively working towards the CHTM certification.

My goal as a CABMET representative is to bring greater awareness of the biomed field to the younger generations in hopes of providing better support to medical facilities throughout the world.
