Health and Safety

Once fellows are accepted into the program, certain health and safety precautions are necessarily taken. Before performing any lab work, fellows are required to take a safety-training course that is facilitated by the Harvard Medical School Environmental Health and Safety department. The course is free and given here at HMS. Fellows will be provided with safety glasses and lab coats and any other equipment necessary for their safety while working in the lab. No previous experience is needed for fellows to work safely.
