Make yourself at home

BME is a small, supportive community within a big university. You’ll find approachable faculty and great, committed staff who can help you make the most of your academic opportunity.

There’s plenty to do outside the classroom, too.

Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES)

The primary goal of the University of Michigan chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) is to serve both undergraduate and graduate students interested in biomedical engineering by assisting their academic, professional, and social development. Thus, the organization will strive to provide information regarding curriculum options, research opportunities, and industrial and academic employment prospects. Additionally, it will distribute information about biomedical engineering to the University community and encourage unity among the biomedical engineering department’s students, faculty, and staff as well as interested individuals from other disciplines.


M-HEAL (Michigan Health Engineered for All Lives) is a student organization at the University of Michigan that fosters interdisciplinary work in global health, design, and entrepreneurship. We engage students from various backgrounds in these efforts through guest lectures, interactive workshops, and volunteer opportunities. We support project teams as they develop health care solutions and as they travel abroad to work with international partners. In all of our activities, M-HEAL strives to cultivate a well-informed, creative, and collaborative community prepared to make a positive impact for global health.

Our mission is to use education, needs assessment, design innovation, and social entrepreneurship to improve access to health care in underdeveloped communities. We envision a world where every person has access to appropriate, affordable, and high-quality health care.
