Abstract

Technical equipments are becoming more and more common in clinical environment. In Sweden there is still a lack of undergraduate education in biomedical engineering adapted to clinical personnel. A course in biomedical engineering aimed for health care personnel at Mälardalen University, Sweden, have been given in two different structures and evaluated. The course content has not been changed with the new structure. We have found that it is of big importance to motivate the students and to show the use of the biomedical engineering knowledge in clinical practice to get them interested to the subject. The subject must also be taught at an appropriate level.
