Become an Associate Member

Associate Membership in the School of Biomedical Engineering is an unofficial position given to a faculty member outside of the school when there is a need to have a formal arrangement to participate in teaching, research and service. This is not a joint appointment. To request membership please see here for more instructions: Associate Membership Application. Each application will be reviewed by the School’s leadership team.

Notes on applying for Associate Membership

The term for Associate membership is a maximum of 3 years. For renewal, a new application package must be submitted. It is expected that each member participate in at least one teaching and/or service activity (i.e. serve on a SBME committee, other than graduate supervisory committees). This activity must be clearly outlined in the letter of intent.

Teaching and Committees

Teaching activities fall under our undergraduate and graduate curriculum umbrellas. Note that our students do take courses in other departments. SBME-specific courses are coded as BMEG courses.

Our list of committees continues to expand as the school itself expands. Below is a list SBME committees:

  • Undergrad Curriculum Committee
  • Undergrad Admissions Committee
  • Graduate Program Scholarship/Awards Committee
  • Graduate Program Policy Committee
  • MEng Admissions Committee
  • PhD Rotation Committee
  • Research Awards Committee
  • Research Advisory Committee
  • Faculty Mentorship Committee
  • Indigenous Engagement Committee
  • REDI Committee

Be open. Be Curious.
