Annual Retreat

The annual fall retreat, organized by the program students and staff, is the most important collegial activity of the academic year. First held in 1983, this retreat takes place at a local New England conference center. This year it will be held at the Red Jacket Resort in Cape Cod. All MD-PhD students are included, whether or not they have MSTP funding. HMS sponsors the retreat, with financial assistance from industry donors. Faculty members active on program committees are also invited. Typically, more than half of the students and 25-30 faculty members attend, with most faculty presenting posters. The retreat is highly interactive. The program varies from year to year, but usually includes oral presentations and posters by students about their thesis research, and discussions about postgraduate training and career choices. In addition, a prominent physician-scientist is invited to give a keynote lecture, named for Eva Neer, M.D., a strong faculty supporter of the program who died of breast cancer in 2000.
