About this course

The Medical Engineering and Medical Physics (MEMP) Program is a five-to-seven-year program that leads to the PhD in Medical Engineering and Medical Physics awarded by MIT or by the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences. The program trains students as engineers or physical scientists who also have extensive knowledge of the medical sciences. By understanding engineering and physical science applications, as well as their clinical implications, graduates of this program are well positioned to define new questions and formulate novel approaches in biomedical research.

Eligibility Criteria

The two Institute requirements for a doctorate are completion of a program of advanced study, including a general examination, and completion and oral defense of a thesis on original research

Course Modules

Two seminar classes help students integrate science and engineering with medicine and develop professional skills. A two-stage qualifying examination ensures that each student is proficient in his or her chosen concentration area, can integrate information from diverse sources into a coherent research proposal, and is able to defend that research proposal in an oral presentation.

Finally, MEMP students investigate important problems at the interfaces of science, technology, and clinical medicine through individualized research projects that prepare them to undertake independent research. MEMP students have the opportunity to perform thesis research in laboratories at MIT, Harvard, and the Harvard affiliated teaching hospitals.

How to Apply

A MEMP candidate must have completed at least a baccalaureate degree in engineering or physical science. Successful candidates will have demonstrated a sustained interest in applications of engineering and physical science principles to biology or medicine through courses, research, and/or industrial experience.

MEMP candidates may choose to apply through MIT, Harvard or both. Those applying to MEMP through Harvard must apply to either the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) or the Program in Biophysics.
