    That will depend entirely on the graduate program and what you hope to do with it.  Most BME graduate programs will take students from other engineering disciplines, but you will need to be careful to select a project the builds on your previous experience so you don't have to start at the beginning again.  Something like haptic technology or robotic assistive technology may be a good way to go.
