IMFAHE Science and Rigor

Leading and cutting edge technologies in biomedicine, engineering and economics are explored in-depth using recent papers of high profile in a round-table discussion format. Course sessions consist of a short lecture led by an international research fellow to review background information, followed by discussion and deliberation of how professional standards and decisions influence research.

Assignment: each student is asked to read the paper and prepare questions to discuss. These questions should be thoughtful and aimed at stimulating and insightful discussion.

All participants receive a certificate of participation that can exchange for credits in their universities.
