High-quality health care is bolstered by effective communication. Regardless of whether you are writing for scientific journals, developing grant proposals, interacting with patients or communicating with the public, effective communication supports improved outcomes. Harvard Medical School’s postgraduate health communication programs help participants present medical and health care ideas with clarity and impact.
These programs are designed for clinicians―including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses and social workers―clinical investigators and researchers. They are also fitting for journalists, bioethicists and public affairs specialists.
Programs are offered in a variety of blended learning formats, including live virtual, self-paced study and in-person sessions at Harvard Medical School as well as locations around the world.
Develop your career potential, connect with broader audiences, accelerate and elevate communication skills, build an international network of colleagues and convey messages more effectively.
The Effective Writing for Health Care certificate program is a one-year, blended learning program designed to help clinicians, clinical investigators, researchers and allied health professionals achieve their personal writing and career objectives through key core curriculum and one of three specialized tracks. The program’s schedule and learning models are designed to accelerate and elevate communication skills with minimal time away from practice or research activities.
