Our devotion to teaching, respect for students, and willingness to embrace technological and clinical practice innovation make BIDMC a top choice among medical students and health care professionals. We train hundreds of medical students, interns and residents, as well as professionals in nursing, social work and the allied health sciences.
Staff physicians at BIDMC who hold faculty appointments at Harvard Medical School instruct the doctors of tomorrow through supervision of their daily patient care and a range of interactive learning experiences. The Carl J. Shapiro Institute for Education and Research at Harvard Medical School and BIDMC, an integral component of the Center for Education at BIDMC, is both a "think tank" for advancing medical education and a unique training resource. Within the Center, the Carl J. Shapiro Simulation and Skills Center provides high-tech learning experiences on topics ranging from minimally invasive surgery to intensive care, and offers opportunities for faculty members to share years of collective experience in mastering the art of science and medicine.
