Harvard Medical School (HMS) was a catalyst for the future development of the LMA when it moved to its current location on Longwood Avenue in 1906.  With the purchase of 36 acres of land, its vision was for affiliated teaching hospitals to co-locate to improve the teaching of medical students by providing on-site clinical experiences.  Founded in 1782, it is the third oldest medical school in the U.S.  Harvard’s School of Dental Medicine and T.H. Chan School of Public Health, along with many of the major teaching hospitals of HMS, are all located in the LMA. HMS has more than 11,000 faculty working in 10 academic departments located at the School’s Boston campus  in hospital-based clinical departments at 15 Harvard-affiliated teaching hospitals and research institutes. These include  LMA institutions Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston Children’s Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Joslin Diabetes Center, Judge Baker Children’s Center, and Massachusetts Eye and Ear/Schepens Eye Research Institute.
