Combined Medicine MD & Engineering BSc Degree studies opens
Beginning in the fall of October 2022
Bioengineering AND Medicine: Shaping future doctors
The field of Bioengineering studies human physiology and health by the use of methods from the field of engineering and from the exact sciences. One of the outcomes is the design of technologies and methods diagnosis and treatments of patients. This clinical reliance of new engineering technologies in Medicine, and the need in physicians with a deep understanding in technology, has brought the two disciplines closer than ever over the recent years, raising the need for a combined training framework.
We are therefore delighted to announce the launching of a prestigious program for outstanding applicants, which will train them in Bioengineering and Medicine:
- The first 3 years are dedicated to studying bioengineering. Students will study, in parallel, a few core courses required for their future studies in Medicine.
- The following 4 years are in the School of Medicine (2 pre-clinical years, followed by 2 clinical years).
The students are expected to complete their final bioengineering project during the preclinical years. Upon completion of the project, the students will receive a Bachelor’s degree in Bioengineering (BSc).
Upon completion of 4 years in the School of Medicine, the students will receive their MD degree.
Altogether, the program is 7 years long, followed by a clinical internship.
