The course explores a broad range of biomedical engineering applied to the clinical area of urology. Urological problems effect 80% of people within their lifetime necessitating the use of diagnostic and therapeutic technology. This important area of clinical bioengineering is rarely covered in degree programmes, despite the unmet need for skilled bioengineers in this area. The module covers the basic physiology and biophysics of the urinary tract in health and disease, with particular reference to clinical incontinence, clinical measurement and urodynamics as used by clinical scientists and clinical engineers for diagnostic assessment. It also considers the development and use of current and future medical devices including urinary catheters and implantable stents, artificial urinary sphincters, functional electrical stimulator implants and urological tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. The module is supported by external, clinical and industrial experts providing specialist information with the possibility of additional patient perspectives. This module is taught using flipped learning, that enables students to fully engage with the subject matter and learning objectives. This involves interactive face-to-face small group supervisions with the module organiser(s) and external experts. Students gain both subject specific knowledge and transferable, professional practice skills including the ability to explain and discuss bioengineering concepts, to ask appropriate technical questions of experts, to conduct data analysis tasks, to present graphical data, and to review and discuss scientific literature.
