“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 today.”

“...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. Thank you.”
