BMES aims to provide valuable educational opportunities to the biomedical engineering community through various online learning and professional development offerings. The goal of these offerings is to promote lifelong education and career advancement courses, as well as to serve our mission of deepening the understanding of biomedical engineering and bioengineering worldwide.
In addition to finding valuable BMES content below and in our archives, we invite you to submit webinar abstracts on webinars you wish to see produced. There are two new tracks you can submit to, depending on the content you would like to share;
Education (a research presentation, panel, advertisement, mentor opportunity, breakout sessions, professional development, academic development, BMES related, etc.)
Industry (a research presentation, an overview of your company, a look into your life and how you got there, mentor opportunities, breakout sessions, professional development, etc.)
If your webinar topic is selected, you will receive an email to discuss planning and production details. If you have questions about submitting a webinar, please reach out to email@example.com.
The Path to Graduate School
Inclusive Practices for Faculty Recruiting
Margaret Wolford is the Director of Recruitment and Admissions for Binghamton University's Thomas J Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science. As Director, Margaret oversees the Watson School's graduate recruitment efforts worldwide.
In this presentation, Margaret will speak about the various techniques on how to successfully apply, and market yourself, to graduate schools. Afterward, she will answer attendees' questions.
Watch the live webinar on February 24th, 2PM EST.
Join our moderator, Evangelia Bellas (pictured) as she, and our three panelists, discuss lessons learned in inclusive faculty recruiting and where there is room for improvement. We will hear from faculty who have roles at various stages of the faculty recruiting process, including Faculty Search Committee Chair, Department Chair and Associate Dean for Research and Faculty Development and learn about their practices in inclusive recruiting. In addition to demonstrating why it is important to our BME community to have diverse representation in their faculty, we will reflect on what has worked well and what has not in the faculty recruiting process. We hope by the end of the webinar to have identified 1) common best practices, 2) areas of improvement and 3) ways to continually improve together as a broader BME community.
