The Department of Bioengineering at the University of Illinois is revolutionizing its curriculum by increasing its focus on teaching students about the societal needs that necessitate bioengineering solutions. In this paper, we provide an overview of the goals of our revolution and the process by which we will create this change. We provide examples of how we are centering our curriculum around addressing society needs through clinical immersion experiences and disease-centered learning tracks.
