The Academy at Harvard Medical School

The Academy is established to advance the education of physicians and scientists throughout the Harvard Medical School community.

Harvard Catalyst Advanced Curriculum Compendium

Over the past several years, the landscape of clinical investigation has undergone dramatic changes. New tools have transformed the magnitude and scope of clinical investigation and changes in regulatory practices have altered how we conduct these studies. To prepare clinical investigators for the challenges that lie ahead, the Harvard Catalyst Advanced Curriculum Compendium (ACC) has been developed to provide clinical investigators with opportunities for continuing education in clinical investigation beyond the introductory level.

Through a searchable online catalog, the Advanced Curriculum Compendium offers educational opportunities to learn new methods or update existing clinical investigative skills. The compendium consists of lectures, seminars, and courses that target core competencies fundamental to successful clinical investigation.


Harvard's Center for Workplace Development

The Center offers comprehensive career consulting services to faculty. It's programs have become a valuable benefit that affirms management commitment to support and encourage individual career growth and professional development.


Harvard Macy Institute

Since its inception in 1994, the Harvard Macy Institute has trained over 2,000 health care educators worldwide, through three highly regarded continuing education programs offered annually. The major objective of these programs is to help participants -- whether they chair departments, serve as academic deans, direct training programs, or create curricula -- develop the strategies and skills required to lead organizational change and drive innovation. The faculty who have participated in the Institute's programs have developed into an international alumni community committed to a lively ongoing dialogue on health care education reform and innovation.

Established with a grant from the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation, the Institute is a collaborative effort of Harvard Medical School, the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and Harvard Business School. Preeminent Harvard faculty members like Dr. Elizabeth Armstrong (HMS), Dr. Clay Christensen (HBS), and Dr. Robert Kegan (HGSE) work with colleagues from leading institutions around the world to design and implement the programs. Many program alumni return to the Institute to serve as faculty.
