The Harvard Macy Institute was established in 1994 with a grant from the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation. The Institute is a collaborative effort of Harvard Medical School, the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and Harvard Business School. 


The Harvard Macy Institute brings together health care professionals, educators, and leaders to discuss the critical challenges of the day and design innovative solutions that have a lasting impact on the way medicine is practiced and students are educated. Our goal is to foster transformative learning experiences that prepare the Harvard Macy scholars to lead institutional change as well as discover and harness new perspectives which may contribute to their professional growth.
