Student-Faculty Meeting Followup

Thanks to everyone who gave their questions, concerns, and comments for discussion in our latest AEMB student-faculty meeting. We've distributed our meeting minutes via the Biomedical Engineering email list. We'll be holding an in-person followup debrief to discuss these points in greater detail, for those of you who are interested. In addition, we will be taking additional input from the general body, so feel free to come in with thoughts to share.

If you're an inductee, this will be the last event prior to induction. If you have not attended the AEMB General Body Meeting or Post-Graduation Panel, you must make this event to be inducted!!

International Update

Alpha Eta Mu Beta has recently opened a chapter in Canada. Now, AEMB is the international biomedical engineering honors society. If you're interested in more news, you can check for the official AEMB website at The current newsletter can be found here.

In more local news, we'll be hosting a Post-Graduation Panel on November 3 at 5 pm. We'll have a Kaplan test preparation representative, one of our own professors talk about grad school admissions, a recent RU BME graduate now working in industry, another recent RU BME graduate in med school, and a current Masters student in attendance. If you're interested in knowing what lies beyond undergraduate and how to best prepare, come out and join us in BME 116. Free pizza will be there.

If you're a potential inductee, you must make at least one AEMB event prior to induction to qualify for membership. Our general body meeting counted towards this requirement and the upcoming Post-Graduation Panel will also. We'll only have one more event after the Post-Graduation Panel to fulfill the requirement, so plan accordingly.

General Body Meeting

If you're reading this webpage, you probably are interested in what Alpha Eta Mu Beta is and what we do. Come by BME 128 tomorrow at 5 pm for our general body meeting, where we'll be discussing eboard positions, the upcoming student-faculty meeting, and future events.

If you're an inductee, this is a perfect chance to fulfill the pre-induction AHMB event participation requirement. If you can't come, we'll have 2 more events to fulfill this requirement.

AEMB Post-Graduation Notes

Thanks to everyone who came out to the AHMB Post-Graduation Panel. We had a great time talking to our Kaplan, MD/PhD, Master's, and Industry representatives.
