assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School (HMS), course director of the psychopathology class for the MIT-HMS Program in Health, Sciences and Technology, and a contributor to The Clay Center for Young Healthy Minds at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH).
Dr. Schlozman has been involved in national efforts to increase recruitment into psychiatry and to decrease stigma with regard to psychiatric illness, and is particularly interested in the power of stories and narratives to help people to understand mental health issues. He has been the keynote speaker for the International Health Humanities Conference and has lectured internationally about the importance of stories in the practice of medicine. In keeping with his love of narrative, he writes short fiction, and has published two novels. His first novel, The Zombie Autopsies, was optioned for film adaptation by the late George Romero, creator of Night of the Living Dead. At the undergraduate level, Dr. Schlozman teaches a freshman seminar at Harvard University that focuses on horror and thrillers in literature and film.
