Biomedical Innovation for the XXI. century

Between the Semmelweis University (SU) and Pázmány Péter Catholic University (PPCU)

Course description and objectives

We would like to bring to the attention of the students a newly started English course on the topic of engineering innovation in medical research and patient care. The course does not require any engineering or medical previous experience. This course was designed for medical student with basic biophysical and biological knowledge.

COVID-19 update

Most of the lecturers from Semmelweis University and Pázmány Péter Catholic University all play a crucial role in dealing with the current epidemic situation in Budapest. Thus, lectures could only be organized by substitution, which we organizers do not want. Based on our previous experience, it would affect the standard of lectures. Therefore, we have decided that there will be no video recordings, but lecture materials and, along with 2-3 review articles, will be posted on our website for help in preparing the exam.

Deadline: May 13, 2020

It is possible to choose a topic for the essay from the lectures (see below) or from your interest, thesis, or Ph.D. topic. It is entirely up to You! It just have to related to both medical and engineering disciplines!
