    Hi! I'm just about to enter my fourth year of my undergrad in Health Sciences with an Honors Specialization in Biology, and am now looking for masters programs in biomedical engineering in Canada to apply to. I have always had a strong passion for biology and medical sciences, however med school is nearly impossible to get into these days. I have also had a strong interest in physics since high school and have done fairly well in my 2 required physics classes in my undergrad. I'm wondering if ...

    Hello Farris,

    Hi Dr. Tate, Do you know of anyone who is a BME and working in the area of cancer research (ie. improving drug therapies, drug delivery, nanomedicine, improving detection, etc)? I am entering into a Masters program in BME this Fall and my focus will be in cancer. It is a topic that I am most passionate about. I have questions about what various career opportunities/roles there are in that area and what steps are required to get there. I have heard that I can start working in the industry with ...

    Does Biomedical engineering involve a lot of physics? At the moment I am a junior in high school. I have been struggling in my physics class and I want to be a biomedical engineer I want to work in the medical field by creating medicines and doing research in a lab. I am afraid that since I am not good at physics I will not be good in this field. I love biology and chemistry. Is there any way I will be able to work in this field involving mainly chemistry and biology? I am just afraid if it ...

    Dear Aleks,

    What a great question! As with many professions, you will take a range of classes at different levels during your training, already starting in high school. Success in your career does not depend on any one class or theme, and some of the ...

    Hi! My name is Angela. I'm a sophomore in high school. I'm trying to figure out my college plans, career, etc. I love math and science! I have really high ACT and SAT scores, so I want to get some type of academic scholarship to help pay for college. My favorite subjects are math and science and I've taken many AP courses in these subjects. I'm really interested in the medicial field, but I know that engineering is coming to play an even more important role in medicine. I've been ...
