Medicine and Engineering Interest Group
The Medicine and 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 medicine.
Now sponsored by MEDx, MEIG includes members from the School of Medicine and the Pratt School of Engineering. MEIG events include lunchtime talks by innovative physicians and engineers and interactive sessions with various technologies such as 3D ultrasound and 3D printing. In previous years, MEIG has worked on the Hand2Hold program to build 3D printed prosthetics.
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.
