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.

Join us for our 15th Annual "UnConference" and Annual General Meeting!

The BMCAA's biggest event of the year is finally here!

Join us virtually for our 2-day, 15th annual “UnConference” and learn from (and get inspired by) current BMC students, alumni, and industry professionals from across the globe. This year's speaker line-up will be covering a wide variety of topics in biomedical visualization and design for science and healthcare - there will be something for everyone!

We will also be holding our Annual General Meeting (AGM), where we will be electing a new Events Coordinator, News Editor, Social Media Manager, Outreach Coordinator, 2 Viewbook Editors, and First-Year Student Representative! 

*New to UNCON this year* - an evening social (since we can't see each other in person) and BMClasses to kick off and close our two-day conference event. Note that you must register for these events separately. Head over to the UNCON and event pages for more information!
