The Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Virginia was established in 1967 as a joint program of U.Va.'s School of Medicine and School of Engineering and Applied Science. Today, everyone from prospective students to ABET accreditors takes note of BME's true dual culture in Engineering and Medicine, which is almost unique to U.Va. It's one reason why the Provost's Office has identified Biomedical Engineering – U.Va.'s top-ranked science or engineering program – as a strength to sustain in its Strategic Directions for the University of Virginia.
Our department is home to a Wallace H. Coulter Foundation Translational Partnership Award , which draws on the joint strengths of the U.Va. School of Engineering, School of Medicine, Darden School of Business, and Health Sciences Center.
