Welcome to the new Harvard Medical School website! And welcome to the Dean’s Corner, where I am looking forward to regularly sharing my thoughts and views on topical issues important to the practice of medicine, to medical education, and to the lively, vital world of biomedical research. This website is a work in progress and will continually be refreshed. I encourage you to visit often.
On this site, we invite you to learn about our latest initiatives in biomedical research and education through several new resources including HMS produced videos and podcasts, a news room where you will find current information emanating from the School as well as the 17 pre-eminent Harvard Medical affiliates. Throughout the site we have introduced new interactive tools with the goal of creating a dialog with you, our visitors. These tools include our Idea Lab blog where you may add your opinion on current issues to those from visitors throughout the world. You may also share your thoughts through our new commenting tool found on all news articles, videos and podcasts. I’m excited to use this new, interactive website to bring the powerful conversations already happening at HMS to the rest of the world.
Above all, I invite and welcome your personal feedback on the work we do at Harvard Medical School, and on its contribution to our mission to alleviate human suffering caused by disease.
My vision is that this Corner—and this website—will build new relationships and strengthen existing ones. Please visit us often— I hope you will find that there is always something new to inspire and captivate!
