CEDAR staff provide a 3rd year module on medical device evaluation for the Medical Engineering undergraduate degree. They teach topics from CEDAR’s work programme, from finding appropriate evidence (structured literature searching) and critical appraisal of this clinical evidence, through to designing clinical trials and a basic understanding of health economics and clinical research ethics. Students are taught about the particular difficulties of producing guidance on medical devices (compared to pharmaceuticals) and the complex factors that affect technology adoption decisions. CEDAR staff also contribute to teaching anatomy and physiology to 1st year undergraduates on Medical Engineering and Medical Physics degrees, and a module on medical ultrasound for 3rd year Medical Physics.
