My name is Ekta Nagar and am in my final semester of the Master's in Health Systems program in the Health Systems Institute (Health Systems). I have Bachelor's in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Miami. Currently I working with Dr. Craig Zimring on a project for the Military Health Systems and helping them incoporate Evidence Based Design into their upcoming facilities projects. I am originally from South Floride and I love spending time with family and friends, watching bollywood movies, planning events and baking!
My Experience with Clinics
I have had several encounters with the Student Health Center at the University of Miami. Other than the convenience of it being on campus, it has not been very unpleasurable. There was always problems with insurance and even with an appointment the wait times were unbearable. Many times the clinicians were guessing at what was wrong.
Through this class I hope to gain a better understanding of the clinic environment as well as use my engineering skills to develop a solution for a persistant problem within the clinical environment,
