Biomedical Inventions: Clinical Experience and Selected Success Analysis

Provides students with a survey of key biomedical research needs by lecture-discussions and facilitating interaction with academic-clinicians and scientists active in medical care/research. Both drug and technology development in the various medical and surgical specialties are examined. Students develop the knowledge base needed to obtain elective clinical experiences. Unsolved clinical problems are sought by each student in a biomedical area of their interest and presented to the class. Interactions with academic physicians who have successfully developed technologies and drugs that are approved by the FDA and in widespread clinical use. How, where, when and why biomedical enterprise and medical practice can successfully intersect is explored. Students can interact with academic physicians engaged in the development of novel technology and drugs, analyze successes and autopsy failed biomedical enterprises.
