HST Educational Programs are distinguished by three key elements:
A strong quantitative orientation
Required hands-on experience in a clinical setting
A focused interdisciplinary research project
HST students have access to research opportunities in labs at MIT, Harvard, and affiliated teaching hospitals as well as immersion in a community of peers with career paths in medicine, science, and engineering.
HST's unique environment allows students to pursue their interests while at the same time providing them with rigorous foundations in science, engineering, clinical medicine and scholarly research.
Members of the HST community - students, faculty and staff -- are required to adhere to standards outlined in the HST Credo of Professionalism
