TOLUCA – The Medicine Department at the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEM) gathered members of the medical community — students, teachers, physicians and investigators — during the Third Biomedical Engineering Symposium. The event provided the latest information on clinical engineering, medical assistance, rehabilitation and neurological applications.
María Dolores Durán García, head of the engineering department, welcomed participants from other universities with biomedical engineering programs, as well as representatives of the area of clinical engineering.
Imelda García Arqueta, sub-chief of the department, highlighted the importance of the program, offered by UAEM since 2011. Technology is fundamental in any physician’s day to day activities, she said.
The symposium benefited over 200 students that are part of the biomedical engineering program, strengthening their ability to support new technologies that shall assist in supplying medical aid, stated García Arqueta. It aimed at providing its audience with the latest information on technological trends and a forum for debate between the medical and the engineering communities.
