HTE@USC

The USC Viterbi School of Engineering and the Keck School of Medicine of USC are proud to present a new interdisciplinary educational program for medical and engineering students. Health, Technology and Engineering (HTE@USC) will augment the training of select doctors and engineers through project-focused collaboration resulting in the most effective and efficient solutions to real-world healthcare problems. HTE@USC is part of a larger USC effort to promote rapid advances in healthcare through research and education combining the essentials of medicine with advanced engineering and scientific technologies. As active members of interdisciplinary teams linking researchers at both the Keck and Viterbi schools, students will learn the patientcentered research approaches required to address the healthcare needs of all patients, including those from traditionally underserved populations.

HTE@USC is directed by Terry Sanger, MD, PhD, and George Tolomiczenko, PhD, MPH, MBA.
