Advisory Councils are teams of national leaders whose collective efforts nurture an environment in which innovation is valued and rewarded.

Comprised of distinguished individuals and thought leaders, Harvard Medical School Advisory Councils provide strategic advice and feedback to faculty, serve as advocates for focus areas, and provide and secure resources that support the mission and core values of the School.
