A message from our CEO

Dear Colleagues:

Welcome to our website. We hope you’ll find it to be a useful tool for accessing information about Harvard Medical Faculty Physicians at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (HMFP) and our community affiliates called Associated Physicians of Harvard Medical Faculty Physicians at BIDMC (APHMFP).

Our physicians, researchers, advanced practice and administrative staff, who are the foundation of our medical community, are exceptionally caring professionals and bring expert clinical, research and professional experience with a common focus on providing the best possible care and service to our patients and their families.

Modern medicine is more challenging than ever before…for our patients and our providers. That’s why our more than 1680 providers work every day to share knowledge, build deeper collaborations and makes strides in improving the well-being of our patients, the community and each other.

Along with the BIDMC and our network of hospitals and practices, it’s our goal to foster an environment of respect, diversity, inclusion, health literacy and high performance. We strive to understand and respect our patients’ cultures, beliefs and language needs to ensure we’re delivering high quality patient-centered care at all levels. Creating a workplace culture where our physicians and staff have a say in how things are done and are respected for the differences in background and thought, goes hand-in-hand in achieving this goal. We know attracting and retaining a workforce representing the communities we serve is both the right thing to do and improves interpersonal experiences and clinical outcomes.

Our organization continues to grow so please consider joining us. Whether it’s providing integrated care in one of our centers of excellence, working in a community practice close to your home, treating high risk patients in one of our many specialties, or translating our leading edge research to improve treatments and education, we have a vast array of opportunities for talented and dedicated physicians, advanced practice professionals, and research staff who want to help us change the delivery of healthcare for our diverse population.

I invite you to stay in touch and explore all we have to offer.
