EnMed is educating a new kind of doctor with an engineering mindset-a physician engineer, or “physicianeer” – who will be uniquely qualified to make significant contributions to the transformation of health care through design and development of innovative medical technologhies to address health care’s greatest challenges. It’s the nation’s first fully-integrated engineering and medical education curriculum accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), and allows graduates to receive both a doctorate of medicine and master’s in engineering in four years. While the inaugural class is set to begin in 2019, three students joined the program in 2017 to serve as the pilot class.
