Over the past several decades, laboratory research has accomplished dramatic breakthroughs in biomedical science, but the ability to translate those findings and make new discoveries remains a challenge and is often characterized as the bottleneck of clinical translation.


In response to this need, Vanderbilt University School of Engineering, in partnership with the Vanderbilt Institute for Surgery and Engineering (VISE), launched a master of engineering in surgery and intervention — a specialized, rigorous engineering graduate program that will prepare the next generation of engineers to address challenges and envision solutions at the interface of engineering and medicine.
