As part of the curriculum, the students of the Department of Medical Electronics, along with two faculty members, visited NIMHANS Hospital, Hosur Road, Bengaluru, on 30th August, 2019, to have an overview of Medical Electronics Equipment. The visit to the hospital was coordinated and guided by Mrs. Sindu G (HOD – Bio-Medical Engineering Department) and her team at NIMHANS Hospital. At MVJCE, the Hospital Visit was organized by the Assistant Professors in our Department of Medical Electronics, Mrs. Anu Joy and Mrs. Shilpa N. The student participants were from the 5th and 7th semesters of the Medical Electronics Department. 16 students participated and benefited from the Hospital Visit.
The objective of the visit was to motivate the students to develop a strong grip on the basic models of medical equipment and to make them realize the importance of developing applications on these equipment. The visit would surely prepare the students for their future career in the industry through understanding of the medical equipment operation, in real time.
The students and faculty members started from the college at 8.30 am and reached the hospital by 10:15 am. The visit started with an Introduction to NIMHANS Hospital and its Biomedical Department, by Mr. Jain, Bio-Medical Engineer. The students were taken around different departments of the hospital, to have a real time experience on the many bio-medical equipment used here. The students had an opportunity to learn about the working of many of the latest equipment like CT Scans, MRI, Physiotherapy equipment, EEG, EMG, Rehabilitation, Laboratory equipment etc. The students also visited the Brain Museum where they got an insight into the functionalities of the human brain, and the abnormalities associated with it.
