Sidney R. Baer, Jr. Foundation Lecture Series

Each year, an international leader will be invited to BIDMC as the Sidney R. Baer, Jr. Visiting Professor, where they will spend time with fellows and faculty and share the latest advances in the interface between neurology and psychiatry. Each visiting professor will be invited to join the selection committee for the following year to help handpick the program’s future fellows and visiting professors. The overall objective of the visiting professorship is to engage experts from outside Harvard to share their expertise and knowledge, help us improve the educational curriculum and research efforts, and further strengthen the integration of neurology and psychiatry.
