Medical Engineering Interest Group

The Medical Engineering Interest Group (MEIG) was formed in 2012 to stimulate interest and collaboration in medical design and technology among Duke University School of Medicine and Biomedical Engineering students and to produce competent physicians and scientists capable of making technical advances in the field of medicine.

Now sponsored by MEDx, MEIG includes members from across the two schools with diverse educational and training backgrounds. MEIG events include lunchtime talks by innovative physicians and engineers and interactive sessions with various technologies such as 3D ultrasound.

Additionally, MEIG leverages its unique role as an advisory board for undergraduate biomedical engineering design groups by hosting an annual Medical Engineering Design Night, where undergraduate senior design projects from surrounding schools (UNC, NCSU, Duke) are critiqued and improved.


Anyone who is interested in getting involved is encouraged to reach out to Nathan Brajer (, Malhar Patel (, or Rui Dai (
