Harvard-MIT Health Sciences
Founded in 1970, the Harvard–MIT Program in Health Sciences and Technology (HST) is one of the world’s oldest interdisciplinary educational programs focused on translational medical science and engineering. The program is an inter-institutional collaboration between MIT, Harvard, and local teaching hospitals, dedicated to fostering academic excellence, scientific rigor, and clinical expertise.
HST has a home on each side of the Charles River. At MIT, the program is part of the Institute for Medical Engineering and Science (IMES) and represents the vanguard of IMES’s educational initiatives. At Harvard, the program is part of Harvard Medical School’s Program in Medical Education, housed within the Irving M. London Society.
This volume describes, analyzes, and evaluates the first 25 years of the largest lasting collaborative educational and research program between two neighboring research universities.
