“The University of Memphis’ Department of Biomedical Engineering provided me with
the most challenging and fulfilling years of my life so far.”
“Memphis has one of the highest concentrations of orthopedic device companies in the
world; I knew I could gain valuable experience by coming to UM. The other factor that
drew me to UM was the sense of community. … I felt they cared about me as a student
and as a person. They continued to show that level of commitment and caring throughout
my four years at Memphis and show it even still. … The University of Memphis has provided
me the knowledge, experience, skill, and support I needed to have the success I have

|“...The support and willingness to teach from the staff in BME has to be the most
unique aspect of this program. I was afforded an opportunity in an internship due
to the collective efforts of the professors in this department. That internship was
instrumental in giving me the tools necessary for employment after graduation. I was
never considered to be the smartest student but I can honestly say that being a part
of this program has changed my life. I am forever grateful to all of my professors.
