Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES)
The goal of the BMES student chapter is to introduce students to the profession of Biomedical Engineering. We provide an environment for social interaction and exchange of ideas between students and faculty. Activities include bi-weekly meetings, social events, participation in the annual and regional conferences, local lab tours, guest speakers, and volunteer opportunities around the greater Birmingham area.
Social events include outings to sporting and cultural events, charitable fundraising efforts, bowling nights, picnics and cook-offs, nature activities, and intramural sports. For professional development, the BMES student chapter provides an opportunity for BME students to network and meet with faculty and professionals from health care and related industries and health care providers to learn about various opportunities in the field.

Biomedical Engineering Graduate Student (BMEGS) Organization
The Biomedical Engineering Graduate Student (BMEGS) Organization is a student organization that was created, and is run by BME graduate students. BMEGS became an officially recognized UAB student organization in the fall of 2009.
The purpose of BMEGS is to facilitate cohesive communication between graduate students involved in biomedical engineering research and biomedical engineering faculty members, allowing the students to take an active role in steering the direction and growth of the Biomedical Engineering Graduate Program at UAB through increased interdepartmental collaborations and external outreach programs. BMEGS is organized into committees for each of the organization’s focus areas: professional development and networking, intramural/recreational sports, social activities, and community service/fundraising. BMEGS holds monthly organizational meetings; all graduate students involved in biomedical engineering research are welcome to join BMEGS.
Please contact a BMEGS officer for more details or any questions you may have.
