Biomedical Engineering Society


The Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) is a professional society for biomedical engineering.  The leadership in accreditation, potential licensure, publications, scientific meetings, global programs, and diversity initiatives, as well as our commitment to ethics, all serve the mission to promote and enhance knowledge and education in biomedical engineering and bioengineering worldwide and its utilization for human health and well-being. BMES wants to build and support the biomedical engineering community, locally, nationally and internationally, with activities designed to communicate recent advances, discoveries, and inventions; promote education and professional development; and integrate the perspectives of the academic, medical, governmental, and business sectors.

Some BMES membership benefits include networking, a career fair, subscriptions to newsletters such as: Annals of Biomedical Engineering (ABME), Cardiovascular Engineering and Technology (CVET), and E-Bulletin.  Members also receive online access to the BMES Career Connections job board listing career opportunities and internships.

Other membership benefits include the opportunity to receive awards and recognition (including election to Fellow), voting rights, and the opportunity to serve on leadership committees and other global initiatives in the Society to advance the field of biomedical engineering.
