School of Biomedical Engineering Proposal

Help shape the UBC School of Biomedical Engineering proposal.

The Faculties of Medicine and Applied Science, through early feedback and consultations with members of the UBC community have developed a draft proposal for a new UBC School of Biomedical Engineering.

It is envisioned that the UBC School of Biomedical Engineering will be a nucleus for research, innovation, and education in biomedical engineering, creating new knowledge, and fostering technology transfer that leverages UBC strengths and results in innovative products and services that improve patient care and outcomes.


We are seeking your feedback and invite you to review the draft School of Biomedical Engineering proposal.
