Research Software Camp: FAIR software (19-30 June 2023)
"Our RSCs allow researchers with limited or no experience in software engineering to learn new coding skills and receive personal guidance in a welcoming and supportive environment."

Research: Are We Measuring What’s Meaningful?
(Really more general than biomedical software)
"We propose more broadly applicable guidelines (such as infrastructure that supports the usage of software and the collection of metrics about usage), as well as strategies for various types of software and resources."
"Software practices and principles should become a core part of biostatistics curricula"
I suspect that ALL disciplines would end up learning software engineering if that was the case. And while I think that's great for people who want to learn it, I'm not sure that it should be a requirement for everyone. Leave it to the research software engineers if that's what you'd rather do.
