Harvard Medical School hosts an annual media immersion program that brings together a small group of medical and science journalists and preeminent researchers and physician-scientists on the Harvard Medical School campus in Boston.
The sessions, which can vary in length from one to several days, are designed to provide journalists with a deeper understanding of the spectrum of research and state of the science in a particular area.
Reporters meet with a variety of experts on a given topic, including basic scientists, translational investigators, and practicing clinicians.
Harvard Medical School covers the cost of participants’ lodging, meals, and ground transportation in Boston. Attendees are responsible for covering their own travel to and from the Boston area.
