Biomedical Communications Alumni Association


The Biomedical Communications Alumni Association aims to strengthen the existing BMC community
and foster the growth of the BMC industry

The BMCAA is proud to support a tightly knit community of alumni, students, and faculty of the University of Toronto's Master of Science in Biomedical Communications (MScBMC). BMC alumni see themselves as proud, lifelong members of a global biomedical communications community in pursuing innovation and excellence at the intersection of medicine, health and visual communication.

We are governed by a volunteer Executive Committee that facilitate initiatives and events that will bring the broader community together through meaningful and enriching experiences. Throughout the year we hold many community building events, such as guest speaker presentations, workshops, and socials, as well as special events such as our annual "unconference", a day where alumni and students share new and innovative ideas, techniques, and research.

Lisa Qiu (1T8)

Co-President Hello! I am a graduate from the 1T8 class and currently working as a medical animator at INVIVO Communications. I come with a background in science and formal art training so naturally, I love making some good looking science and telling a great story. When I'm not at my computer, I enjoy great food, hanging with my cat, and a fun adventure. This is my first year as a BMCAA exec member and I'm looking forward to giving back to the wonderful BMC community as this term's co-president.
