The RIT Student Chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) began in the fall of 2012 with the official chapter title earned in the winter of 2012. Our mission is to bring together those in the biomedical community to work towards a common goal – advancement of human health. The society was established in 1968 with 171 members and has grown to over 80 student chapters and over 5,500 members. National members of BMES enjoy access to three scholarly journals, a monthly newsletter, special interest groups, members-only online content (including career assistance), discounted regional and annual meetings, and much more. See the RIT BMES Chapter website for more information.
