Instructor: Rachael Schmedlen, Ph.D.
Students will spend 3-4 hours/week shadowing nurses, technicians, surgeons, and physicians at the UM or VA Hospital, observing clinical practices in various medical specialties and settings. From these observations, students will identify important clinical problems and generate need statements based on their understanding. By the end of the term, students will assess the impact, marketability, and feasibility of solving these unmet clinical needs and recommend which could be addressed by BME students in the capstone design course (BME 450 or 451/452).
