Dean's Council

The Dean’s Council is the leadership annual giving society of Harvard Medical School. Because of the extraordinarily rapid pace of progress and change in science and medicine, HMS benefits enormously from flexible funding in several core areas. Members of the Council provide ongoing support, which enables the dean to direct resources where they are needed most. Initiatives include student financial aid and scholarship, recruiting star faculty, and upgrading and maintaining some of the world’s most advanced biomedical research labs.

 Federman Loyalty Circle




The Federman Loyalty Circle honors our generous alumni who have made consecutive annual gifts of any size to the School for five years or more. Named after Daniel D. Federman, AB ’49, MD ’53, the Carl W. Walter Distinguished Professor of Medicine and Medical Education and former dean for medical education, a beloved and devoted member of the HMS community for more than 60 years, it is fitting that members of this society should be identified with such a dedicated physician, teacher, scholar, and role model for generations of students and alumni.
