Fundamental knowledge of biomedical science, engineering, and technology, including insights into the complex real world phenomena, into the mechanisms behind the working of the biological systems and modern devices, advanced biomaterials and a wide range of environmental influences, are expected to affect learners’ thought processes in a special way. Modern biomedical instruments provide data for disease forecasts. They monitor different stages of disease development from localized or regional spread to distant spread and during incubation, prodromal, illness, decline, and convalescence periods. This paper presents 150 multiple choice questions and answers relating to the biomedical field that eventually helps us to understand natural phenomena, biochemical concepts, principles and processes, design and development of modern medical devices, diagnostic tools, treatment techniques, advances in medication and constructive applications. The purpose is to generate curiosity among learners to know more about the biomedical field and to highlight its importance in the real world around them so that they can take informed decisions in the future. The paper will facilitate learner self-evaluation and knowledge development in the biomedical field through various facts and figures in the form of questions and answers. This questionnaire is intended to promote interest among wider audiences from science students to health activists, and it will set the stage for further tangible progress in capacity building essential to their future ability to use biomedical ideas effectively.
