Overview & Locations

Learn and Connect with the Global Biomedical Engineering Community

Through Chapters, the next generation of engineers raises awareness of global health challenges and innovates solutions to the medical technology issues unique to low-resource settings. Participation in EWH Chapters helps students connect to a global network of biomedical engineers who share their passion and introduces them to ways that they, too, can make a difference.




What do Chapters do?


  • Kit Builds - Bring the Chapter together to learn hands-on skills and introductory instrumentation
  • K-12 STEM Outreach - Introduce the next generation to biomedical engineering and global health

Engineering and Innovation

  • Design Competition - Research and develop new technologies to enter the EWH Design Competition
  • BMET Library Projects - Organize hackathons, create teardown videos, and develop other resources for EWH’s BMET library

Global Service


Chapters organize events typical of most on-campus organizations: Host guest speakers, professional development events and conferences, form committees for various projects, and collaborate with other organizations and EWH Chapters. Learn more from our Chapter of The Year winners.
