BMES would like to welcome you back to what is sure to be another fun and fulfilling semester at Penn.

The Fall 2014 semester was a very successful one for us. We won the BMES Outstanding Outreach Award from the national BMES organization for our efforts in spreading awareness about bioengineering to the surrounding community. We also organized a variety of events focused on professional development, community service and academics. One of our biggest events was the BE Alumni Reception. Taking place in the Glandt Forum of the Singh Center for Nanotechnology, undergraduate BE students had the opportunity to speak with alumni about their undergraduate experiences and the careers they are currently pursuing with their BE degrees. Another event was the Healthcare Consulting Panel, hosted in partnership with the M&T Club. The panel consisted of representatives from ZS Associates, PwC, and Simon-Kucher & Partners. It was a great way for students to learn more about healthcare consulting from professionals in the field. In November, we organized a registry drive with Be The Match to allow BE students to join a bone marrow registry and get the opportunity to save the lives of blood cancer patients. We are planning on holding another drive this semester to give even more people the chance to register. Read more…
