Biomedical Communications Alumni Association
UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO
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.
Virtual AMI Social
It’s July, and the annual AMI conference is just around the corner! Once again, this year’s AMI will take place virtually; and while it is tradition to hold a BMC alumni lunch at the location of the conference, your BMCAA will keep the tradition alive, virtually, by hosting a social event for all BMCers past and present. The best part? You don’t need to be registered for the conference to attend - everyone is welcome!
Join us in the 8-bit pixelated virtual world of Gather Town, a playable and flexible virtual space that mixes video conferencing capabilities with interactive features like games and white boards. During the event, you’ll have the opportunity to virtually interact with fellow alumni, just like you would at an in-person social, in our specially-designed games room and virtual rooftop. We hope you'll join us and enjoy this unique opportunity to socialize on a fun, new platform.
Location: the comfort of your home / Gather Town (virtual). A link will be circulated to registrants in advance of the event.
Date: Thursday, July 29th
Time: 8-9:30PM EDT
