The 2018 Inductees
|Dr. David has been inducted into the Clinical Engineering Hall of Fame in recognition of his leadership and vision in bringing clinical engineering to its status as a recognized and important profession. His signature achievements in the formation of the American College of Clinical Engineering and the Healthcare Technology Foundation helped to provide pivotal opportunities for clinical engineering to stand as an independent profession and to have an appropriate home for the certification process. His continuing vision of clinical engineering as a global profession paved the way for the enduring international cooperation in the profession. Read more
||Dr. Wear has been inducted into the Clinical Engineering Hall of Fame in recognition of his impact on two generations of clinical engineers through education, teaching, and mentoring. In the early days of the profession, the late 1960s and early 1970s, he established the first teaching periodical in clinical engineering. His pioneering work also included the establishment of the training center that became U.S. Department of Veterans’ Affairs National Engineering Training Center. Over the course of his career, Dr. Wear has taught aspects of clinical engineering worldwide and taken on leadership challenges in clinical engineering education and advocacy. Read more|

About the Clinical Engineering Hall of Fame (CE-HOF)
The Clinical Engineering Hall of Fame (abbreviated as CE-HOF) is a recognition program and virtual museum established by ACCE in 2015 to recognize and celebrate the application of engineering and managerial skills, in the support and advancement of patient care through technology, and to honor individuals who made extraordinary contributions to this effort over many years of service.
By recognizing the visionaries, leaders, and luminaries who helped to create and advance the CE profession, ACCE believes the CE-HOF can help the society at large to appreciate the essential role of these professionals within the healthcare environment. Without highly qualified, motivated, and dedicated CE professionals, it would be impossible to deploy technology safely and cost-effectively to prevent and diagnose diseases, as well as treat and rehabilitate patients in any part of the world. In addition, the CE-HOF allows students and others who are interested in exploring CE as a profession to understand and appreciate the challenges and rewards in pursuing this career.
The CE-HOF Nominating Committee (NC) has been established for the purpose of reviewing nominations and selecting deserving candidates for voting by the ACCE membership. The Committee is composed of 5 (five) members appointed by ACCE Board selected among its Fellow and Emeritus members. Each member shall serve for 3 (three) years with the possibility of being appointed only once; staggered terms will be developed. Currently, the Nomination Committee is chaired by Ray Zambuto, and other members are Thomas Judd, Bill Hyman, Tom O'Dea and Malcolm Ridgway.
Each year, a limited number of candidates will be selected by the Nominating Committee for voting by ACCE members. The results will be announced at the ACCE annual meeting, as well as in official ACCE publications and on ACCE website. No monetary award or plaque will be offered. Instead, the recognition will be made in the virtual museum on the ACCE website. On the virtual museum, pictures, biography, documents, videos, etc. of the inductees will be posted, so the general public, CE professionals, and aspiring professionals can learn and appreciate the extraordinary contributions made by these pioneers.
