EU cofunded ITEM

Dr. Jiri Hozman is an associate professor in the field of Electronics and Medical Technology and guarantor of the study bachelor program Biomedical Technician. He is responsible person for accreditation processes, teaching process methodology, relevant courses topics and learning outcomes within the whole study program Biomedical Technician. He is a committee member of Czech Society for Biomedical Engineering and Medical Informatics Czech Medical Association of J. E. Purkyně) and by this committee he was nominated as Co-Chair of the Education Committee within the World Congress IUPESM 2018 ( Dr. Hozman is one of the four teachers (lecturers) of a course Selected topics from mathematics for biomedical engineers. Within this course he teaches integral transforms topics. He also teaches mathematical modeling and simulation and image processing from the point of medical imaging systems view within a few bachelor, master and doctoral courses. In correspondence with these courses he established in 2008 university laboratory of patient simulation with simulated ICU equipped with set of simulators including two artificial patients (mannequins) for emergency care and for clinical simulation. He is head of this laboratory and he was supervisor of student bachelor and diploma theses including modelling based on the math equations. He has experience from clinical practice within the Motol University Hospital in the field of medical imaging systems as well. Dr. Hozman is official external expert of Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic for the university accreditations assessment within the whole Czech Republic. He is Head of the Department of Clinical Engineering within the Institute for Postgraduate Medical Education and he is responsible for accreditation and implementation of the accredited qualification courses, certificated courses and lifelong learning courses for biomedical technicians and biomedical engineers in clinical practice. The most relevant ESF projects where he was responsible person for the project proposal and implementation are the following: Innovation of the Bachelor Study Program Biomedical and Clinical Technology to Improve Application of the Graduates on the Labor Market, CZ.04.1.03/, 27.6.2006 - 26.6.2008, Practical Students' Skills Education Quality Improvement of Biomedical and Clinical Technology Study Program, CZ.04.1.03/, 1.1.2007 - 30.6.2008, Modernization of educational methods and improvement of practical skills and habits of students in biomedical technician branch, CZ.1.07./2.2.00/15.0415, 11.10.2010 - 28.2.2013. Instrumentation and computer aided processes in medicine, CZ.02.2.69/0.0/0.0/16_018/0002363, 1. 5. 2017 - 30. 9. 2022 (new PhD study program Simulation and Modeling in Medicine). Dr. Hozman was member of the team responsible for the program proposal and implementation of the Common European Master’s Course in Biomedical Engineering (formally part of the 2009-2013 Erasmus Mundus Master's Course Program) and he was vice-dean of education (2008-2016) - Faculty of Biomedical Engineering/Czech Technical University in Prague as responsible person for educational accreditation of third mentioned study program within the international consortium, i.e. Aachen University, RWTH, DE, Trinity College Dublin (TCD), IE Ghent University (UGent) together with Free University of Brussels (VUB), Brussels, BE, University of Groningen (RuG), NL and Czech Technical University (CTU) in Prague, CZ (see ) as well.
