Everyone has a story. What’s yours?

People of Harvard Medical School is a community building and engagement campaign celebrating the School’s greatest asset: the PEOPLE OF HMS.

If you’re a staff or faculty member, researcher, student, postdoc, trainee, fellow, alum, or donor, YOU ARE HMS. If you work, learn, or practice in a lab or classroom, from a home office, on the Quad, in the community, at one of our 15 affiliated hospitals and research institutions, or anywhere across the country or around the world, YOU ARE HMS.

More than 40,000 of us, including 10,000 alumni, each in our own way help to advance the School’s mission and values. Our collective efforts support a common cause, while our unique individual experiences and talents cultivate a more vibrant, welcoming community in which each of us can feel at home and thrive. Together, WE ARE HMS.

Each member of our community has a story to tell, and every story paints a fuller picture of what and who HMS is today. What's your story?

This initiative launched in March 2023, was inspired by the Humans of New York photoblog and book, and is led by the Office of Communications and External Relations with input and support from the Offices of the Dean, Executive Dean for Administration, Human Resources, and Diversity Inclusion and Community Partnership.
