You're an integral part of the alumni community.

Connect with the HMAA

The Harvard Medical Alumni Association (HMAA) is committed to maintaining an important role in your life and profession by keeping you connected to the School and other alumni. 

  • How do I sign up?

    All alumni were added to their class’s listserv by default, using the preferred email address on file. If you are not receiving emails from your listserv, please contact the Alumni Engagement team at hmsalum@hms.harvard.edu so we can update your email address if necessary or opt you back into the group.

  • How do I email classmates?

    To “post” (send an email) to the listserv, type your class listserv address (hms_classYYYY@listserv.med.harvard.edu) in the “To:” field of your email. The YYYY indicates the 4-digit class year matching your preferred year. Typically this is the class you matriculated with. You will get an automated message asking to confirm you are the sender. Click the link in that email in order for your message to be distributed. Don’t forget that listserv messages are received by all of your classmates!

    Please contact the Alumni Engagement team at hmsalum@hms.harvard.edu if you need help.

Many of the services above require that you log in using your HarvardKey
