For example, at University of Wisconsin it is possible to focus on that through EE, medical physics, biomedical engineering, and regular physics.
Any thoughts on how they differ? I'm trying to figure out which path to apply to because Univ of Wisc only allows one application per admission period.
your question is like saying, I want to work in the field of nanotechnology. which major is better: physics, chemistry, EE?
nanotechnology or biomedical engineering are broad topics and require scientists from different majors. which path to take depends on your background and research interests. once you are decided on your specific area of research, find a professor/research group which suits your interest and then see what are the requirements to get into that group.
