Welcome to SBME@UBC

Created in 2017 through a partnership between the Faculties of Applied Science and Medicine, and enabled by the leadership of British Columbia’s provincial government, the School is unique as UBC’s first inter‑faculty school. We are built on a foundation of collaborative research and teaching excellence with the vision to transform patient health and healthcare as we know it.

The School is expanding rapidly in lockstep with the ambitious goals outlined in its strategic plan, including hiring new faculty, launching new programs, and building new partnerships with UBC entities, hospitals, and industry in the Biomedical Engineering community. There is much more to come as we expand our programs so check our website often for the latest news on the SBME.
