Our committees

iBioMed’s Recruitment Committee oversees activities and initiatives related to recruiting future iBioMed students.

This includes (but is not limited to):

  • Answering questions in the McMaster Class of 2028 Discord channel
  • Monitoring Reddit to respond to FAQs and provide accurate info about the program
  • Attending recruitment events like OUF, Fall Preview and May@Mac
  • Delivering presentations about iBioMed and McMaster to local high schools
  • Conducting campus tours for prospective students
  • Engaging with prospective students online and over email
  • Developing iBioMed recruitment events and initiatives

This committee is responsible for planning, creating and posting consistent and high-quality content on our TikTok that resonates with iBioMed’s audiences.

There are lots of opportunities to jump on trends, engage with our online community and get creative. If you’re comfortable being the center of attention, and live and breath all things TikTok, this is the committee for you!

Our The Editorial & Content Committee develops content for our Instagram, website, events and much more. This team will be taking pictures, doing student takeovers of social channels, interacting with current and prospective students and so much more.

If you love making content and want to develop strategic thinking for connecting with audiences, then this committee is for you!

The Events Committee will help plan, promote and run events for their fellow iBioMed students. From helping with the year end showcase through making content at those events, this committee will help promote the program and the great work students are doing!

The YouTube Team is responsible for every step of making videos for our channel, from developing a content calendar to conceptualizing, designing and recording videos.

If you’re comfortable in front of a camera, or want to get some video editing and shooting experience, this is the committee for you!
