The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) has a rich history of teaching critical and integrative thinking and design skills throughout the curriculum, culminating in a year-long senior capstone design experience. The capstone includes clinical rotations and shadowing in the early stages of the design sequence — participating medical faculty enhance student exposure to biomedical device ideation, which promotes the virtues of team-based experiential learning activities that teach critical thinking and integrate new knowledge with prior learning.
