HLA Symposium

For over sixty years, Hollis L. Albright, M.D.’31 dedicated his life to surgery, patient care and the students he mentored. In recognition of his life-long achievements, and, to foster the values he cherished most, his children, Tenley E. Albright, M.D.’61 and Nile L. Albright AB’61, M.D., have established an endowed Symposium. Held each year, the Symposium highlights new scientific initiatives and advances at Harvard Medical School.


The Symposium begins with a presentation by the Dean highlighting “What’s New at Harvard Medical School,” followed by distinguished speakers and guests. In addition, an award is given to an outstanding third or fourth year student pursuing surgical sciences.
