Three cross-disciplinary team-based laboratory courses were introduced into the biomedical engineering curriculum at Milwaukee School of Engineering to enhance student understanding of the interdependence of the engineering topics and biomedical science. A major challenge for the faculty was the assessment of student understanding and retention of...

... Student feedback indicated that these topics had little continuity and lacked the details and specific examples necessary to appreciate their importance in biomedical engineering. During a recent curriculum revision, we shortened our capstone design sequence from seven to four academic quarters [4] and introduced a new course, Biomedical Device Evaluation, with emphasis on FDA regulation and clinical device evaluation processes. The course was designed to address the demands for knowledge of regulatory affairs in the medical device industry and to provide our students with a solid framework for understanding and appreciation of these concepts. ...
... As recommended by the IAC, the new track retained the two design reviews. Professional topics such as intellectual property, FDA regulations and standards which were previously covered somewhat superficially and lacked continuity, were moved to two new courses, Professional Topics in Biomedical Engineering and Biomedical Device Evaluation [7]. The placement of these courses in the program track ensured that the timing and coverage of these topics were well aligned with the students' progression in the design process. ...
