Our Compensation Philosophy

People are our greatest resource. Harvard Medical School (HMS) is the leading medical school in the country, and we attribute this to the remarkable people who teach, conduct research and work here. A central tenet of the Human Resources mission is to identify and hire individuals who reflect the values of this institution and who will be dedicated to the success of our daily efforts “to create and nurture a diverse community of the best people committed to leadership in alleviating human suffering caused by disease.”
