Physician Engineers: A New Breed of Professionals

on Wed, 09/28/2016 - 14:53

By Marilynn Larkin

What do point-of-care diagnostics, organs-on-chips and pacemakers have in common? They’re all products of interdisciplinary collaborations, and team members usually include physicians, who provide input on what’s needed in the clinic, and engineers, who help design and develop the devices. Recognizing the power of such collaborations, the IEEE launched the Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine a few years back “to support the movement of biotechnological innovations from idea to clinical trials and commercialization.”
