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

October Comics Jam

Thur, October 29th @ 8:00pm - 9:00pm EST

The comfort of your own home! The event will be held over video chat. 

Come have a Skele-ton of fun for our first ever virtual comics jam! Typically during this time of year, we'd be gathering for a night of collaborative painting during our annual Art Attack. Though we can't gather in person this year, it doesn't mean we can't have a gourd time and draw together. Here's your chance to get creative with your fellow BMCers and have fangtastic time creating spooky comics from our humerus prompts. It’s going to be an osteoblast!

Where: Via a zoom link to be shared closer to the date

What: Join the zoom call where we will split up into teams and piece together comics based on some spooky prompts. Think Telestrations but Halloween! Bring your favourite drawing tools, whether they be traditional or digital!
