The Scholars in Medicine Office (SMO) helps Harvard medical students plan optimal scholarship and volunteer experiences. This office is responsible for implementing the Scholars in Medicine (SIM) Program, inaugurated in 2011, where students carry out a faculty mentored scholarly project as a graduation requirement. It offers funding to HMS students for scholarly activities and advises on external stipend funding. It also manages selected exchange clerkship programs for HMS and foreign students, language programs at HMS, and a host of community service opportunities in Boston. The office also manages the Honors In A Special Field program.
