The LGBT Office was established in 2014 to enhance diversity inclusion while fostering an open, affirming, and welcoming community for LGBT students, staff, faculty, trainees, and fellows at Harvard Medical Schooland Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HMS/HSDM).  Our goal is to identify key areas of importance, programmatic interventions, and resources that support LGBT issues. We collaborate with relevant offices and programs within HMS/HSDM, Harvard University, and the broader community to build an inclusive environment. The LGBT Advisory Committee advises the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine on key priorities that address issues of importance to the HMS/HSDM LGBT community.
