The Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine (HMSOM) and Stevens Institute of Technology (Stevens) have announced an academic partnership whereby HMSOM medical students have an opportunity to pursue a master’s degree in biomedical engineering on Stevens’ Hoboken, NJ, campus.
The accelerated program will be part of HMSOM’s highly individualized Phase 3 curriculum, which is available to students seeking to augment previous backgrounds in engineering or related fields.
Medical students with this additional training will be well-equipped to understand advances in medical device design and development in the future to best care for their patients.
“We are so excited to have medical students on campus and participating in this exciting curricular offering,” said Jennifer J. Kang-Mieler, chair and professor of biomedical engineering at Stevens.
HMSOM Vice Dean Stanley R. Terlecky, Ph.D., cited the emergent ties with Stevens on research and academic fronts as “important strategic initiatives through which we will continue to grow.”
Students will be eligible to enroll as early as 2024.
