BIOE 4910/H Bioengineering Research and Clinical Summer Immersion at Charleston (BEACH) – 2023 Summer I/II (6 Credits: Co-instructor)
This summer program targets students who are committed to advancing their engineering expertise in graduate schools or health professions after graduation. Hosted by the Clemson-MUSC Bioengineering Program, through hands-on work in research labs and shadowing experiences in clinics at MUSC in Charleston, students will develop a first-hand perspective about the skills necessary to succeed in graduate or health professional schools. The program will be held over 12 weeks (Summer I and Summer II per Clemson 2019-2020 Academic Calendar). For each summer session, students spend a minimum of 135 hours in total on activities including lab research, clinical shadowing and seminars. Friday mornings, all participants will meet in the classroom for seminars given by Clemson or MUSC faculty; postdoctoral scientists; PhD and medical students. Research projects will typically focus on but not limited to the following topics: orthopedics, biomaterials, bioimaging, and stem cell-based tissue engineering.

Rising juniors or seniors in bioengineering or any related engineering majors.

Course Credits
Participants must be enrolled for credit in BIOE 4910 or BIOE 4910H for eligibility. Students who are using this program to meet departmental honors requirements (research thesis and required seminar attendance) must enrolled for both sessions for 6 credits. Students who choose BIOE 4910 (non-honor section) can enroll either or both sessions to get 3 or 6 credits.
