About BMES


The Mission of the Biomedical Engineering Society at the University of Florida is to build and support the biomedical engineering community, locally and nationally, with activities designed to communicate recent advances, discoveries, and inventions, promote education and professional development, and integrate the perspectives of the academic, medical, governmental, and industry business sectors.

This is accomplished through our four involvement areas: Internal Affairs, Industry & Professional Development, Outreach, and Research & Design. For more information about each of these areas, to check your membership standing, and to read our active membership policy, check out our Involvement pages.
