The University of Washington School of Medicine is a public facility, and the first of its kind in the contiguous states of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho. Founded in 1946, the medical education which Zachary Stephen Layton received at University of Washington was from a leader in primary care, family medicine, biomedical research, experimental therapy, clinical treatments, and academic medicine.
Zachary Stephen Layton works as a biomedical engineer in Seattle, Washington, with a specialty in bioinstrumentation. Layton analyzes problems which are experienced in biology and medicine, and works to design solutions which will be positive for patients. The study of bioinstrumentation is highly technical, as doctors and specialists have an ongoing need for innovative electronic and measurement devices to be used for diagnostics and for treatment of diseases and conditions.
Zachary Stephen Layton has worked since his graduation in research and medical laboratory environments. Biomedical engineers in general may find lucrative employment in manufacturing, universities, hospitals, research facilities of companies and educational and medical institutions, and government regulatory agencies. Layton acquired his Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Washington, which led to his work with bioinstrumentation. Another avenue to the biomedical profession is a bachelor’s degree in an associated field of engineering, and an added graduate degree in biomedical engineering. The employment projections for biomedical engineers are bright, indicating a growth of 27 percent from 2012 to 2022. An older population which is living longer will continue to place growing demands on the medical professions for health care, and with that demand will come the need for ever more sophisticated technology.
