Supporting Graduate Students

The GSD was created to foster a graduate student community and to serve the practical needs of graduate students associated with basic and clinical research at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Areas of emphasis for this office include:

  • Providing educational seminars, services and resources for graduate students
  • Enhancing the overall student experience
  • Establishing relationships with graduate schools
