Harvard Surgical HSR Speaker Series

The Center for Surgery and Public Health showcases Health Services Research (HSR) experts from the Harvard and Mass General Brigham campuses and across the country as part of the Harvard Surgical HSR Speaker Series.

The goals of the Harvard Surgical HSR speaker series are to share research methods and findings, disseminate best practices, and identify potential shared interests and areas of collaboration. Seminars are held 6-9 times over the course of the year. They are open to the public, but will be most relevant to academic surgeons, residents, researchers, students and collaborators across the Harvard community.
