Biomedical Engineering: Solving the Body’s Challenges with Technology

Your hands-on introduction to Biomedical Engineering

Learn the engineering approach to the body. Understand the difference between a scientist, an engineer and a biomedical engineer. Learn the engineering approach to medical problem solving and review current news stories on the topic. Discover the tools biomedical engineers are using. Master the practice of measuring; a key part of the engineering design process. Discover why measurements are a critical part of the engineering design process. What do bioengineers measure? How do they do it exactly? Understand how bioengineers collect data and the many ways they put it to use. Be able to answer the question: how do skeletal muscles work? Look into the mechanical aspects of muscle tissue: learn the relationship between the length of a muscle and the magnitude of the force it can produce. Make predictions about the relationship between muscle length and muscle tension and confirm using data in the form of a graph. Investigate skeletal modeling Find out how to apply simple lever mechanics to the attachment of muscle to bone, and learn how engineers create and use body diagrams. Apply engineering specs to solve problems — such as how much weight a muscle can lift. Discover how the heart muscle works Explore a 3-dimensional model of the heart and make predictions based on the relationship between heart volume and pressure. Confirm your findings through data. Prepare for a future in Biomedical Engineering Topics covered in this course offer a good background for potential careers in fields related to biomedical engineering — Biomaterials Developer, Manufacturing Engineer, Physician, Orthopedic Surgeon, Independent Consultant, Biomedical Scientist/Researcher or Rehabilitation Engineer.

U.S. Healthcare: Politics, Problems, and Possibilities

Learn the inner workings of U.S. healthcare

If you ask your parents to describe healthcare when they were growing up, chances are it was a lot different than it is today. And since the birth of the Affordable Care Act, healthcare has changed even more. In this course, you will learn the history of how the U.S. system works and the turning points that influenced change. Get an in-depth look at the types of insurance available: employer-sponsored, Medicare, Medicaid, private plans and the ACA. You’ll also discover the difficult politics of reform and why healthcare is a flashpoint in our culture. You’ll write short essays, hear from industry experts and even design a plan of your own.
