The Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp toured the Texas A&M University School of Engineering Medicine on March 15 and received a personal demonstration from EnMed instructional associate professor Ian Murry, Ph.D. on a conceptual ventilator used to blend engineering and medicine in the respiratory course. Sharp also received demonstrations from several EnMed student groups who presented their innovative projects in a judged poster session. These projects are part of the unique blended curriculum that distinguishes the EnMed medical curriculum from conventional medical school programs.
“We enjoyed hosting Chancellor Sharp,” said Murry. “This was a hands-on demonstration to illustrate how courses are instrumental in designing prototypes that enhance a practical teaching opportunity for engineering and medicine in a realistic academic setting.”
