Welcome to the Bay Area Association of Medical Instrumentation!


The Bay Area Association of Medical Instrumentation,(formerly known as Suncoast Biomedical Society) was founded in the 1990's, by a group of Biomed technicians and Clinical engineers to serve the Tampa Bay area (Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg).  Since re-established in 2005, BAAMI has been helping the local Biomedical Technicians to be better prepared by exchanging information, ideas and technical training during monthly meetings and other fun activities.
