Harvard Medical School’s Longwood campus is in the heart of one of the nation’s most vibrant cities. Boston’s unique charm and character emerges from its central role in American history and the easy access it offers to a cosmopolitan abundance of personal, social, and professional opportunities.
With over 40 colleges in the area and an intellectual tradition that has resulted in the emergence of many of the nation’s most influential religious, philosophical, and political movements, Boston offers HMS students a wealth of academic resources. Biotech research also has a formidable presence in the neighborhood alongside HMS’ own renowned research presence.
The HMS campus is located across the Charles River from Harvard University’s Cambridge campus. The travel distance between HMS and Harvard University is minimal with many public transportation options bridging the two campuses.
