Dr. Andrew Robbins is helping health care professionals develop their ideas to assist patients from conception to production by teaching students about the overlap between engineering and health care through his work at Engineering Medicine (EnMed).
“While all medical schools train physicians to be great doctors, some doctors want to create technologies to fix problems in health care,” said Robbins. “EnMed provides a hands-on education program preparing students to become medical innovators.”
“While all medical schools train physicians to be great doctors, some doctors want to create technologies to fix problems in health care.”
Students learn how to diagnose patients while simultaneously studying how to develop influential medical technologies. Rooted in its collaboration with Houston Methodist hospital, it prioritizes research and experimentation.
“EnMed is an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in translating research into products that make a difference in the clinic,” said Robbins. “I love working with students in EnMed that want to solve the biggest problems in health care.”
