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 University’s Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering.
Students will participate at the West Lafayette campus. Completion of the scholarly project could be done remotely.
Curriculum and Timeline
Students completing this concentration will get an introduction to biomedical engineering design, development, deployment of medical and assistive technologies and their translation into clinical practice. Prior coursework or training in engineering is not necessary. Also, students will participate in start-up like practices as they learn how to build a business model, talk to customers and gain insight from experienced leaders in the field of medical devices/technologies. This is an experiential learning opportunity; teams will be engaged by “getting out of the building” and interviewing customers to discover the value of their ideas.
