Abstract

The VaNTH Engineering Research Center for Bioengineering Education Technologies' has completed the first round of a Delphi study to determine the key concepts that comprise the core curriculum of undergraduate programs in biomedical engineering. The study was conducted as a web-based survey, consisting of eighty questions divided among nineteen topics, including eleven biomedical engineering domains, four biology domains, and mathematical and scientific prerequisites. Participants included representatives from academia, industry, and young alumni of undergraduate BME programs. Results from the survey will be available at: http://www.vanth.org/curriculum/.
