About Biomedical Engineering

Welcome to the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering!

UF BME is one of only a few departments in the nation to be co-localized with a top-ranked medical school, veterinary school and dental school.

The department is part of the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering and is a prime resource for biomedical engineering education, training, research, and technology development. BME is an ever-evolving field that uses and applies engineering principles to the study of biology and medicine in order to improve health care.
