Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) is one of the nation's preeminent academic medical centers. We are committed to excellence in clinical care, bio-medical research and education and to the health and wellness of our patients and our communities.
Beth Israel Deaconess, a major teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, is a fully integrated medical center providing adult services from cardiology to obstetrics, gastrointestinal disorders to cancer care. Each year U.S. News & World Report ranks BIDMC as a "Best Hospital" in multiple specialties. As national leaders in patient care quality, safety and transparency, we are setting standards in the way health data can be used to improve care and services. We were the first hospital in the country to achieve meaningful use of electronic medical records, meeting a key set of new federal government standards.
BIDMC attracts leading clinicians in all medical fields. Our experts not only provide gold standard treatments to help a patient get better, they also help educate the public on disease prevention. BIDMC clinicians feel a responsibility to do more than make patients better when they are sick-they want to help the community stay healthy.
BIDMC is home to a renowned academic research program, where scientific discoveries help to transform medical care. We rank third in the country for National Institutes of Health funding among independent hospitals. With revolutionary advances and therapies happening within our walls, we are a national and international leader in "bench-to-bedside" research.
Our patients benefit directly from our dedication to research. At any given moment, more than 300 clinical trials are offered throughout the medical center for those difficult to treat cases, in areas such as cancer, neurology, cardiology and other medical specialties.
BIDMCs 1,250 full-time physicians constitute almost a quarter of Harvard Medical School's faculty. Because of our roots, we are committed to training the next generation of doctors, and have raised medical education to a higher level with a uniquely strong and deep program that enhances our ability to attract top faculty and residents. Learning flourishes within our hallways, as students learn from the best of the best in an open environment that produces leaders of tomorrow.
In pursuit of clinical and research excellence, we have formed partnerships with outstanding community hospitals, specialty care centers and physician practice groups in eastern Massachusetts to give you and your family the convenience of high quality care, close to home. With BIDMC at the core of this network, access to specialty care downtown is always available when appropriate. We are dedicated to providing the right care, at the right time, in the right place.
Compassionate nursing is central to your experience here. Our nurses are highly regarded for superb care, kindness and proficiency. Our quality and safety initiatives, second to none, are often held up as a model for other institutions. As a hospital deemed "Most Wired," and "Most Wireless," we are reengineering how to gather, safeguard and utilize health information. Our systems are state-of-the-art and all BIDMC clinicians use centrally hosted electronic medical records.
You expect excellence in clinical care, research, education and community outreach from a prominent academic medical center. But we believe what makes BIDMC even more remarkable is our spirit. We treat our patients with the utmost respect and compassion, as we would our own family members and friends.
To provide extraordinary care, where the patient comes first, supported by world-class education and research.
The mission of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is to serve our patients compassionately and effectively and to create a healthy future for them and their families. Our mission is supported by our commitment to provide personalized excellent care for our patients and a workforce committed to individual accountability, mutual respect and collaboration.
Critical to our success is the partnership between the medical center and its physicians. It is their partnership that allows the medical center to carry out our mission of teaching, research and clinical care. Our partnership with Harvard Medical School and our role as a major Harvard teaching hospital strengthen our ability to train, teach, and create new knowledge. We are committed to recruiting the best physicians, scientists, nurses and others to support these activities.
In addition to servicing our patients, the medical center is committed to being active in our local community. Community service is at the core of the religious tradition of both the founding hospitals, and still today is an important part of our mission. We have a covenant to care for the underserved and work to change disparities in access to care. We know that to be successful we need to learn from those we serve. We recognize our role as a tertiary/academic resource in a larger health system. We look forward to acting collaboratively with our community partners so that together we can provide the clinical integration that will best serve our patients.
We recognize that the diversity, talent, innovation, and commitment of all of our employees contribute to our strength and are a major component of our success. We greatly value the leadership and participation of our trustees, overseers and donors who make an invaluable contribution to our ability to carry out our mission to serve patients, students, science and our community.

Being able to work with a diverse team
Can get overwhelmingly stressful and never enough nurses to cover a shift
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
Interview process was quick and not too hard. They brought me in for an interview and asked me a couple questions about my resume. I met 3 different people and then was brought around to meet the rest of the people in the division.
