Biomedical Engineering Education for Developing Countries

By: Douglas, T.S.;

2012 / IEEE


This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' Biomedical Engineering Education for Developing Countries ' Biomedical engineering (BME) finds itself at the intersection of the emerging disciplines of humanitarian engineering and global health, through its role in developing sustainable technological solutions to improve health and addressing health disparities. It provides a framework within which to educate future leaders to design and implement health technologies that are appropriate and useful in their social context, particularly because of its multidisciplinary and design-oriented nature. Some universities in the United States have included an engineering component in their global health programs or included global health and development components in their BME curricula.
