Liliek Soetjiatie, M. Prastawa Assalim Tetra Putra


In medical device companies, hospitals and healthcare facilities, graduates of Electromedical engineering occupy positions as medical equipment technicians, medical device installations, and calibration (large equipment installations). The main problem of this research is the female Electromedical engineering graduate who works in the Electromedical equipment company almost all the time works only revolve around the administration, which in no way touches the repair and maintenance of health equipment that should be their competence.The purpose of this research is for the public to be fair and not to be subordinated to women.  Women acquire gender equality including in the field of employment in accordance with their competence. The method used is qualitative research with a perspective Phenomenology approach and gender that analyses to twelve the subjective experience of research informers while working in three places, namely in electromedical equipment companies, in hospitals, and in health facilities services in Indonesia. Variables used are the competence of electrical engineering graduates and the type of work of female electromedical engineering graduates worked. The contribution of this research is to give input to the stakeholders to give the same opportunity to all the electromedical graduates both male and female. Emphasis on education institutions to review the education curriculum based on gender.  The results of this research are There were 2 informants who work in hospitals and medical devices companies who still carry out Electromedical Engineering competencies with varying degrees, ranging from still doing maintenance, minimal calibration, but are mostly tasked with administrative and management assignments. There are 10 informants who work in medical devices and hospitals that hardly carry out maintenance, calibration and installation of medical devices. In other words, they are by purely serving as administrators of medical equipment companies. The Conclusions of this study are Female graduates of electromedical engineering programs felt that they had not yet achieved their expectations in accordance with with their competencies as electromedical technicians.
