Student Life


Student Life Overview

Students have access to all of the same resources at the Harvard School of Public Health that are available to full-time residential students. Some of the most requested benefits are listed:

Library privileges

Students have circulating privileges at all Harvard libraries, including the Countway Medical Library. Detailed listing of the Countway’s holdings, policies and library hours are below, as well as links to other Harvard libraries:

Career Services

Most of our students are working full-time in a health care organization and are not seeking immediate career services. However, we have developed a growing alumni network to assist those in transition, and offer occasional workshops with representatives of national search firms specializing in physician executives.

In addition our faculty offer extensive contacts in health care organization, and students and alumni are kept informed of new opportunities as they come to our attention.

The Harvard Chan School Career Advancement office is available to assist students with individual guidance, such as translating an academic resume into a more traditional business format.
