Engineering in Medicine

Collaborative Specialization

Meet Mehrdad Khadem, MEng in Engineering in Medicine

“I chose Western University because it is one of the most well-regarded universities in Canada.”

Describe your research.
The purpose of my research is to compare the stability of a total hip implant insert secured with either a bi-cortical or uni-cortical bone screw.

Where is “home” for you?
I come from the capital of Iran – Tehran, but I believe that home is where you can progress in your life and are satisfied with it.

Where’s your favourite place on campus?
My favourite place to study is Weldon Library because it has private study room for graduate students.
