Community and Values

In the Biomedical Communications Graduate Program, we have a commitment to academic excellence and innovation in health communication and visualization. As a graduate program that spans two campuses we try to foster a sense of community among students whether they find themselves on the St. George campus or the Mississauga campus.

We believe that by challenging our student community, we can achieve the greatest impact.

The goal of a university education is to help you develop as an individual intellectually, emotionally, and socially. To do so it’s important to take advantage of the many opportunities available to you. Students have the opportunity to become involved in the Institute of Medical Science Students’ Association (IMSSA) and also to participate in the Annual IMS Scientific Day. BMC students work closely with IMS graduate students in the design and publication of a student initiated quarterly magazine.

Our students collaborate with University of Toronto medical students in the annual publication of Toronto Notes, a comprehensive medical reference for the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Exam. Students may also become involved with the graduate community at UTM (UTMAGS). Our program offers work opportunities for students who are interested in participating in our work-study program, or gaining valuable teaching experience as a teaching assistant for one of our undergraduate courses.

The Biomedical Communications graduate program aspires to provide education and scholarship of the highest quality — to advance the frontiers of knowledge and to prepare students for leadership roles in our profession.
