Biomedical vs Medical Engineering

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could tell me the difference between biomedical engineering and medical engineering, because they are offered as two different courses but google is telling me they are the same thing. Thanks!

- Also if anyone could tell me what would be different between studying physics with medical physics and then medical engineering, that would also be appreciated. I have looked at modules and I assume engineering is more mechanics-based and therefore more hands on but it's hard to grasp.
