Ellen Williams

Ellen advises students and alumni of Harvard College and GSAS who are interested in pursuing a career in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, public health, or another health profession. She also works with the rest of the pre-med team on developing programming and resources for pre-health students. Prior to coming to OCS she practiced both primary care internal medicine and urgent care for many years at the Massachusetts General Hospital. She was an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School where she taught medical students and residents, served on the admissions committee for Harvard Medical School, worked on internship selection for the MGH, and served as an editor for continuing medical education at the New England Journal of Medicine. Most recently she has worked in secondary education in the Boston area. Ellen is a graduate of Harvard College, Harvard Medical School, and the Harvard Graduate School of Education. She is interested in talking to students and alumni about anything, but has the most expertise in issues related to medical school admissions and education. She loves to be outside, to hike, and to do anything that involves being in, on, or near water.
