On Friday, May 31, HST held its 2019 graduation ceremony and reception on the sixth floor of the MIT Media Lab. Fifty-five students received their degrees following heartfelt remarks from Co-Director William Goessling, MD, PhD; Dean of Harvard Medical School George Q. Daley, MD, PhD; and Director of the Institute for Medical Engineering & Science (IMES), HST’s home at MIT, Elazer Edelman, MD, PhD.

MD Program graduate David Joseph (DJ) Bozym gave a delightful student address describing his time at HST in moments, from the edifying to the comical.

Families, guests, and faculty gathered to commemorate the students, many of whom will soon begin internships and residencies in hospitals throughout the country or continue careers in medical research.
