Hear from our Faculty

A Nucleus of Faculty with a Common Understanding Regarding Health Care Education and Innovation

HMI sought to build capacity to promote institution-specific and sustainable change rather than offering a formulaic guide to educational innovation. To accomplish this in a continuing professional development program, HMI courses require and integrate project-based experiential learning and action planning.

Our Mission

Creating Innovators in Health Education

The Harvard Macy Institute brings together health care professionals, educators, and leaders to discuss the critical challenges of the day and design innovative solutions that have a lasting impact on the way medicine is practiced and students are educated. Our goal is to foster transformative learning experiences that prepare the Harvard Macy scholars to lead institutional change as well as discover and harness new perspectives which may contribute to their professional growth.
