Making science and health visible
Clear and compelling illustrations, animations, and simulations are vital to discovery and communication in science, medicine, and health. There is a growing need for individuals with scientific training and the conceptual and practical skills necessary to design accurate and effective scientific media for a variety of audiences.
Over a two-year curriculum, the professional Master of Science in Biomedical Communications (MScBMC) Program engages students in the creation and evaluation of a range of visual tools, including medical illustration, media and user experience design, animation, and virtual simulations.
The MScBMC program is unique in Canada and one of a handful of accredited Master’s level medical visualization programs in the world. This graduate degree is offered through the Institute of Medical Science in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto. The program’s state-of-the-art facilities are principally based on the University of Toronto Mississauga campus.
