Top 15 PhD Programs in Healthcare Technology 2019

A doctoral degree, or PhD, is an advanced level of education that many people attain after completing a considerable amount of schooling in a specific discipline or field. With a PhD, some people may choose to teach while others may enter a profession that requires a doctoral degree.

What is a PhD in Medical Technology? This degree offers a chance to work in a complex, exciting field that can have an impact on a daily basis on people’s lives. Medical technology is concerned with how technology can be used to combat and understand physical afflictions that people may face. Classes in medical technology programs may cover areas like hematology, clinical immunology and coursework related to a potential specialization like clinical pathology.

If this is a degree you are considering working toward, you may be curious to know what some of the benefits are of a PhD in Medical Technology. Achieving this prestigious degree will allow you to work with top-notch experts in the field and grow both your professional network and your advanced skills.

Cost is always a factor when considering an advanced degree program. The price of each program will vary. Talk to each admissions office to understand costs and any options that may exist to help fund your pursuit of a PhD.

Careers in medical technology are often lab-based and may be primarily concerned with the testing of patient samples and diagnosis of diseases and conditions based on test results. Alternately, medical technology program graduates may work in labs that produce new drugs or other advancements to combat disease. Those with advanced degrees may be qualified for director-level positions in this area, which may require more responsibility and supervisory duties.

General Overview of the Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering

Advising and Planning for the First Year

Orientation for new graduate students will be scheduled the week before the start of the Fall semester. New students should plan to attend. Once accepted into either the Ph.D. in Biomedical Science, or the Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering program, and prior to the identification of a dissertation mentor, students will be advised by the First Year Advisory Committee (FYA). There is an FYA committee member at each partner institution. Issues and questions relating to laboratory rotations and coursework should be discussed with an FYA committee member. This FYA faculty member will maintain a role as an informal advisor and graduate student advocate and will offer guidance throughout the student’s program, as necessary. Questions or issues regarding registration for classes should be directed to the GSBSE office. By the time the student has completed three rotations she/he will have chosen a home laboratory and assembled a dissertation committee. The role of advising in the academic programs will then fall to the mentor.... [-]

Biomechanics is an interdisciplinary scientific discipline, which, based on a detailed knowledge of anatomy and the biochemistry of relevant processes, deals with the mechanical structure and behavior of living systems and their mutual mechanical interactions. The main theoretical aim is the formulation of generally valid rules, both at the cellular and organic level, as well as at the human, individual level.

The biophysical and engineering methodological approach for solving tasks is supported by high-level knowledge of the biological character. The research takes place at various distinct levels ranging from micro-biomechanics (cellular level) to living macro systems (e.g. biomechanics of humans). It is possible to encounter biomechanic applications in a wide range of sciences and professional activities.... [-]
