Program Description

This program will introduce you to a variety of cultures, traditions, and biomedical engineering efforts that are actively occurring in Denmark, Sweden, and Finland.  The specific theme of this program is Biomedical Modeling and Global Health, a major focus for researchers throughout Scandinavia.

You will observe cultural and societal similarities and differences between Scandinavian countries and the USA, by interacting with students at host universities, as well as renowned researchers.  The program will develop a broad understanding of advanced modeling techniques in biomedical sciences and how they can be integrated and translated into patient benefits; as well as insight into how Scandinavian research facilitates this translation by engaging global health partners in the developing world. 

This program is open to all Engineering students who have reached at least the sophomore level to seniors!
