Bay Area Association of Medical Instrumentation logo


The Bay Area Association of Medical Instrumentation (formerly Suncoast Biomedical Society) was founded in the 1990's, by a group of Biomed technicians and Clinical engineers, willing to share their experiences and skills with fellow technicians in the Tampa Bay area.

BAAMI was re-established in April 8, 2005, as a chapter of the Florida Biomedical Society (FBS). We are interested in continuing learning about the advancement of biomedical equipment technology. The Association encourages a free exchange of information between Bmets, hospitals, vendors, and all people that is interested in this great field. Biomedical Society's Objectives:
