Clinical Preceptorship

Clinical faculty have unique insights into the limitations of current medical practice imposed by conditions which may be changed by the application of engineering principles. The primary goal for this class is for students to learn about these limitations, and to think about how to move past them. Students will accompany a clinical faculty member in a clinical environment (clinic, OR, ICU, etc.) and work with an engineering faculty member to examine some of these practices and restraints with a goal to propose possible improvements. Students are encouraged to also meet with a patient and include the patient's impressions of current practice and needs in the final report.
