Engineering in Medicine Initiative
If you're current New York Tech student sign up for this initiative. Medical students at our College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYITCOM) study/practice multitude of clinical disciplines on the same campus next to the Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) students from College of Engineering and Computing Sciences (NYIT-CoECS), College of Arts and Sciences (NYIT-CoAS) and School of Architecture and Design (NYIT-SoAD). Therefore, New York Tech has an immense untapped potential to contribute to the medical evolution by facilitating interprofessional collaboration between its colleges.
The program is divided into a planning phase and a construction phase. In the planning phase, 1-2 NYTCOM students will be matched with 2-3 NYIT-CoECS/NYIT-CoAS/NYIT-SoAD students. They will identify healthcare-related issues based on their own experience as well as based on their conversations with medical professionals and other caregivers. Together they will create solutions to remove the boundaries between engineering and clinical disciplines.
