Pioneering the Future of Patient Care

HMS faculty and alumni are also accustomed to setting new standards in patient care. They are policy makers who chart new directions for health care both nationally and internationally. They are leading physicians and innovators whose work touches hundreds of lives. Their many achievements include inventing the iron lung, cultivating the polio virus that led to vaccines, introducing insulin to the United States, mapping the visual system of the brain, creating the external cardiac pacemaker, developing artificial skin, conducting the first successful kidney transplant, and much more.

They are people who lead by example as they inspire HMS students to become medical professionals distinguished both by the quality of care they provide their patients and the compassion they bring to the medical profession.

To be a Harvard medical student is to work with faculty who pioneer the future of patient care—be it designing new cures, methods of medical diagnoses, delivery and treatment, clinical strategies and technologies, administrative models, or health care policies.
