Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS)

The UBC Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) is a sister society to the UBC Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Student Branch. The UBC EMBS is comprised of engineering students with a passion for the biomedical field, and our focus is to help connect the wider engineering community to the biomedical world. With an emphasis on providing academic and industry opportunities for students, our events include networking mixers, hosting guest speakers, and organizing tours of labs, industry facilities, and hospitals. For information about the UBC IEEE Student Branch, please visit our website, or contact EMBS directly at

Peer Mentorship Program – Faculty of Medicine

Graduate studies can be demanding, highly individualized, and frequently self-directed, leading graduate students to feel isolated. We know it can be difficult to connect with peers and find a sense of belonging in the Faculty of Medicine, in part because our students work and learn across multiple sites. Peer mentorship offers a low-pressure space for learning from each other, giving & receiving support, and feeling more at home – whether that’s at UBC, in grad school, or in the research environment.

The GPE is a 12 months peer mentorship program. Mentors should connect with mentees at least once monthly. For more information, please visit our website.
