Biomedical Communications Alumni Association


Driving impact in science and health through visual communication

Since its inception in 1945, the Master of Science in Biomedical Communications (BMC) program at the University of Toronto is continually evolving in response to the changing nature of science, technology, communication, and our profession. It is one of four accredited master's programs world-wide, and the only one in Canada, that educates students in the visual communication of science, medicine, and health.

As a forward-looking field, BMC alumni are always pushing the envelope in advancing discovery and understanding through the power of visual communication, leveraging educational gaming, augmented reality, UI/UX design, and scientific visualization. 


The Biomedical Communications Alumni Association (BMCAA) aims to connect and strengthen the BMC community and drive our industry forward by fostering the sharing of insights and experiences.

Upcoming Event

Oscars & Draw

Do you miss going to the movies like we do? Then join us for a night of Oscar shorts and drawing, or what we're calling: The Drawscars!


We'll be screening a few different shorts from the past years to celebrate the stories and styles of filmmakers around the globe. Grab your popcorn and your pencils (or stylos) -- this will also be an opportunity to do some character and scenery sketching by pausing at your leisure with your screening group for quick studies. Make it a double- or triple-feature by hopping from 'theatre room' to 'theatre room' so you can catch a few different flicks and BMC folks. 

WHEN: Wednesday, April 28th @ 8:00 - 9:30pm EST

WHERE: The virtual cinema (comfort of your own home)!
