NEW! Associate Member Category

After much consultation with CMBES members on how to reach out to the non-managerial /non-supervisory Biomedical Engineering community, we have created a new Associate Member category. This new membership category is being offered at the low rate of $45 to encourage Biomedical Engineering Technologists in the hospital environment or medical device support industry to become members. The CMBES vision is to be the national Society and professional home for medical and biological engineering in Canada and we cannot do that effectively without the participation of frontline technologists.

So, if you are a Biomedical Engineering Technologist and want the opportunity to contribute to the advancement of medical technology and issues affecting the field of biomedical engineering, become a member of our society. If you are a manager/supervisor, please encourage your staff to become members and get involved.
