Members of the U.S.-based BME-IDEA consortium meet approximately every other year to share best practices, discuss common challenges, and brainstorm new directions in BME innovation education. In celebration of 20 years of BME-IDEAs, we are holding a special meeting to celebrate the occasion.
The group typically includes faculty and staff from leading U.S. universities who teach in experiential undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate training programs focused on health technology innovation.
This year’s meeting will take place on Wednesday, October 11, 2023 in Seattle, Washington, in conjunction with the 2023 BMES annual conference.
What Is New and Exciting This Year?
We are celebrating 20 years of BME-IDEAs! This year’s BME-IDEA will feature a panel discussion highlighting the activities and accomplishments from the past 20 years, sharing of what today’s design community looks like and wishes to see in BME-IDEA, and break-out sessions discussing emerging themes. The event will be a half-day session, followed by a networking reception to which all participants are invited.
