Seeking nominations for the BME external advisory committee

Waterloo’s undergraduate Biomedical Engineering (BME) program is establishing an external advisory committee. We are seeking nominations for members who are clinicians or professionals in the biomedical industry. Our preference is that members are external to the University of Waterloo, however we may consider internal members at arms-length to the BME program.

The main commitment would be to attend an annual retreat and give detailed feedback on the program at that time.
