Özet

In the present study, the important role of biomedical engineering (BME) professions in medical education (ME) is highlighted. We propose that BME and ME should be integrated in a joint department to provide high-quality occupational education in medicine. Then, we illustrate the basic connections and close relations between BME and ME with respect to the universal subfields of each scientific branch. As this regard, the proposed joint department in medical faculty would guide the medicine to use innovative educational tools such as humanistic models, realistic simulations, video games, web-based online resources, etc. in both basic and clinical ME. In addition, the combination of two disciplines would prepare the initiative facilities for multidisciplinary original research studies improving human health. Moreover, new trends in instructional evaluation could be captured by studying together in teams.
