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 spring our office hosts a media fellowship program. This 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 questions regarding 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. We welcome members of the media to the school campus. 

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