Why Choose HSS?

From Our Residents


I chose HSS because it really stood out to me on my interview day. I could tell the residents I met were enthusiastic and proud of the program. They were happy to be here and excited to share what they were learning with me. I was also impressed that the program provided training in an environment with both Harvard and VA resources. I had not worked with the Veteran population in medical school and I felt that residency would be a great time to explore this opportunity and be exposed to the diverse psychopathology that is involved. – Ashley Beaulieu, DO
I chose the Harvard South Shore (HSS) Program because I was drawn by the opportunity to be trained by Harvard faculty and have access to Harvard and government resources. I was especially drawn to the COOL (Creating Opportunities for Organizational Leadership) track, and was impressed by the fact that this program is the originator of Project IMPART—the only notable practice in Psychiatry! During my interview day I found the faculty members and residents to be fun, smart, diverse, innovative, and committed to excellence –all qualities that I value in my life.- Ermal Bojdani, MD
Harvard South Shore (HSS) was the one place that I left the interview and felt that I would not only receive an amazing education, but that I would also really enjoy my time as part of the program. I was amazed at how friendly and approachable the faculty and staff were, as well as how quickly I bonded with the residents I met. Simply put, I chose HSS because I felt like it was where I belonged and I am so thankful that HSS chose me too.- Mitchell Crawford, DO
HSS has the most authentically open-minded and open-hearted residents I’ve ever met and the administration offers a surprising amount of flexibility and opportunities for program growth and development. For my interests in particular, this program has excellent resources for its large population of patients with trauma histories and substance use disorders.- Heidi Geil, DO
I chose Harvard South Shore because of the strong emphasis on evidenced-based psychiatric practice. Faculty were engaged in resident learning, and there was strong camaraderie among residents. The flexible leave policy allowed me to frequently travel to visit out-of-town family, which allowed me to stay strongly connected.- Rachel Meyen, MD
Our program is affiliated with some of the most renowned institutions in this country, providing residents with unparalleled faculty expertise and a myriad of resources. This allows for an intellectually and culturally rich environment to optimize our professional development. Most notably, Harvard South Shore residents are extremely diverse yet collegial and collaborative. I knew I would thrive at this program not only because of the opportunities, but also because we are one big supportive family!- Haley Volk Solomon, DO
