About The Weekly Murmur

The Weekly Murmur:

    • publicizes events and issues of interest to the Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Dental Medicine student community.

    • provides a forum for student-led dialogue.

    • stimulates discussion of the ethical, social, economic, and political issues involved in the medical and dental professions.

The Weekly Murmur is an entirely student-run publication. We strive to provide a forum that is relevant (written by students for students), accessible (both on-line and free printed versions), and timely (issued weekly).

The Weekly Murmur is supported by generous grants from the Office of Medical Education and the Student Council. Print services are provided by Harvard Printing and Publications. Online hosting is provided by the Office of Educational Computing.
