Biomedical Engineering and Applied Medical Technology Scholarly Concentration
In the Biomedical Engineering and Applied Medical Technology Scholarly Concentration, medical students develop their understanding and application of biomedical engineering for the ethical design, development and translation of medical and related technologies. Students have opportunities to understand and advance design and translation of medical and related technologies into clinical settings through completion of a scholarly project. This concentration is a partnership with Purdue’s Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering.
Acceptance does not require previous education in engineering. However, the program is targeted to include students with science and engineering backgrounds and interests.
