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.

If you feel like seeing some familiar faces and watching some presentations, we’d love to have you join this year virtually!

In addition, the BMCAA is still looking for new Co-Presidents, Treasurer, Events Coordinator, Secretary, Head Media Editor, Viewbook editors, Webmaster, and News Editors! If you're interested in being a part of an enthusiastic, driven, and creative team and want to find another way to get involved with our BMC community, please do not hesitate to run this year!
