The best medical knowledge — accessible to learners of all kinds

For more than 200 years, Harvard Medical School (HMS) has been the most prestigious and trusted source of medical education in the world. The HMS name is synonymous with best-in-class learning, clinical excellence and innovative biomedical research—an assurance that the knowledge imparted creates transformational impact.

Today, the Office for External Education provides broad access to HMS’s peerless and constantly evolving body of medical knowledge. Created by the School’s almost 12,000-member faculty and comprising firsthand expert clinical insights based on breakthrough research and best practices, this valuable information is now available to business and science leaders, pre-health career learners, clinicians and individuals seeking to increase their working knowledge of health care.

Now more than ever, the world needs access to trusted health information. As the global pandemic continues to disrupt the way we work, live and learn, we have pivoted our approach to delivering education and have developed resources that will have meaningful impact in addressing this crisis and the future of health care.
