In order to meet an increasing demand for continuing education in the medical technology industry, the Special Topics in Biomedical Engineering have been developed. Scientists from institutions affiliated to the Medical Faculty of the University of Bern - the Artificial Organ (ARTORG) Center for Biomedical Engineering Research as well as the Institute for Surgical Technology & Biomechanics (ISTB) – established the course curricula in close collaboration with representatives from the leading medical technology companies in Switzerland. Courses have been designed to convey state-of-the-art knowledge in many future-oriented areas at the interface between applied scientific research and industrial research and development on a high level. Apart from contributing a hands-on aspect in the education of our students, thus complementing the theoretical foundation which is laid in the basic modules, these courses provide an excellent opportunity for industry professionals to deepen and enlarge their knowledge in selected areas of Biomedical Engineering. The course list is continuously augmented.
All our courses are not only open to our students but can also be attended by the interested public. If you want to participate in one of our Special Topics in Biomedical Engineering, please contact the Study Coordination Office for fees and further details.
