Harvard Surgical HSR Speaker Series

Harvard Surgical HSR Speaker Series

The Center for Surgery and Public Health in collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital’s (MGH’s) Codman Center, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center’s (BIDMC’s) FIRST program, and Boston Children’s Hospital, showcases Health Services Research (HSR) experts from across the Harvard Campus and all over 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. Held once a month, for a total of 6-9 over the course of the year, these seminars are open to the public, but will be most relevant to academic surgeons, residents, researchers, students and collaborators across the Harvard community.
