  • Upon reviewing the list of courses planning to be offered for undergraduate and graduates the following conclusions were reached:
    • More Physics classes should be listed particularly physics classes with emphasis on biomedical phenomena
    • Core classes (for graduate students) may not be relevant if most people already come in with those requirements fulfilled (Signals and Systems)
    • Many of the classes listed are not currently being offered
    • Clinical internship courses are scattered and unable to be tracked down, things need to become more organized for students to participate and it would be helpful to have year 3/4 medical students, and/or MD/PhD students teach/give short lectures on materials to BME students before actually sitting in on intern lectures.Also, it may be helpful to establish this as a seminar type of course, perhaps for 1-2 elective credits.
