Honors Biomedical Engineering Internship
Electrical & Electronics Engineer
The four-year Biomedical Engineering program culminates in a senior year internship when students experience the practice of biomedical engineering in real life. Seniors leave campus a few times per week to rotate through different disciplines in the industry throughout South Florida. There are several different biomedical aspects represented in the internship, such as robotic surgery, bioengineering firms that make artificial hearts and pacemakers, engineering firms that produce biomedical instruments, and the practice of medicine in different specialties. The connections our seniors make with practicing doctors and engineers are invaluable and often result in future university acceptances and jobs.
Societies, Community Service, and Competitions
Holiday Party for Pediatric Cancer Patients
Students collaborate with the Pre-Med Society, which hosts holiday parties for patients at Broward Health Salah Foundation Children's Hospital. Their passion for contributing and community involvement is reflected in the thousands of dollars raised through local fundraising events, which enabled them to build two new pediatric playrooms at Broward General Hospital.
Lighthouse of Broward
Students works closely with the Lighthouse of Broward, a non-profit organization that serves the blind and visually impaired in South Florida. The students host numerous fundraising events and community activities benefiting Lighthouse youth programs, interact with children, participate in events, and create solutions that help others with physical challenges. The students are always cultivating their innovative ideas in the community. In conjunction with their final capstone project, seniors created a swim cap for visually impaired swimmers to help them detect their position in the swim lane. In another project for youth baseball, students are developing a system with a sensor sleeve to detect pitch force and an app to calculate when the pitcher is approaching practice limits to warn the coach before an injury occurs.
5K For A Better Day To Benefit Broward Health
Seventeen years ago, American Heritage started its own student-driven 5K. Since its inception, the race has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to benefit the Children's Hospital at Broward Health. Our pre-med students, guided by Director, Dr. Carlos Pulido, spend months planning and operating this sanctioned charity footrace.
