The Harvard-MIT Program in Health Sciences and Technology (HST) harnesses the combined strengths of science, engineering, and medicine, training the next generation of clinician-scientists and engineers to translate research findings into clinical practice and to improve human health.
HST educates innovators, investigators and compassionate clinicians – cultivating leaders who explore fundamental principles underlying disease and advance preventative, diagnostic, and therapeutic methods in biomedicine. For more than 50 years, HST has been an interdisciplinary, inter-institutional collaboration between MIT, Harvard University and Boston-area teaching hospitals. IMES is HST’s home at MIT.
- The Medical Engineering and Medical Physics (MEMP) PhD Program offers a unique curriculum for engineers and scientists who seek to advance patient care by developing innovations to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease.
- The HST MD Program (with option to join the Harvard/MIT MD-PhD Program) trains physician scientists to lead novel biomedical research and to excel in patient care.
- The Graduate Education in Medical Sciences (GEMS) Certificate prepares individuals already enrolled in an MIT doctoral program to translate advances in basic science and engineering to improve human health.
“HST’s unique collaboration between MIT, Harvard, and Boston-area teaching hospitals is another way we’re integrating science, medicine and engineering to solve problems in human health. It is a vital part of how IMES delivers on its mission.”
