New MIT Institute for Medical Engineering & Science (IMES)

I miss being a student at MIT. Those were definitely some of the best days of my life. Recently, MIT launched their Institute for Medical Engineering & Science (IMES). Although HST was there when I was a student, IMES simply didn't exist.

The Institute for Medical Engineering and Science pioneers novel research and graduate education paradigms to advance health and educate leaders working at the convergence of engineering, science, and clinical medicine. IMES brings together MIT’s strengths in engineering, basic science, innovation, and entrepreneurship with clinical practice and research through its strategic partnerships with collaborating Boston area hospitals and biotech and medical device companies.

Based at IMES, the Medical Electronic Device Realization Center (MEDRC) aims to develop disruptive medical device technologies and is supported by a consortium of companies.

Through the Harvard-MIT Health Science and Technology Program (HST), students can also pursue degrees in the following programs:
  • Biomedical Enterprise Program (BEP)
  • Master of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering (MEBE)
  • Medical Engineering and Medical Physics (MEMP)
You can learn more about the MIT IMES program here.
