Institutional Statement
January 11, 2023:  Response to reports about HMS medical education course

Harvard Medical School has a long tradition of working with members of the news media to help improve the public understanding of biomedical science, elevate the national discourse on matters of scientific importance and help increase public engagement in the scientific enterprise. An engaged and informed public is central to our mission to glean knowledge that alleviates human suffering caused by disease. For this reason, each year, Harvard Medical School hosts a media fellowship. The week-long “immersion” program allows a group of reporters to spend time on our campus and in our affiliated hospitals and institutes to gain a deeper understanding of the spectrum of research being done in a particular area.

The Harvard Medical School Office of Communications and External Relations can assist with inquiries related to biomedical science and research throughout the Harvard Medical School community. We can help you locate experts in basic, translational and clinical research, as well as help you obtain more information regarding recent news. 

Please contact us to arrange for an interview, photo shoot, or video taping.
