Dr. Shelly Greenfield Receives Stuart Hauser Mentorship Award

March 10, 2022

Shelly F. Greenfield, MD, MPH, McLean Hospital’s chief academic officer, was one of two Harvard Medical School faculty members selected to receive the 2022 Stuart T. Hauser, MD, PhD Mentorship Award in Psychiatry. The award recognizes faculty members for outstanding mentorship of medical students, residents, fellows, and junior faculty.

“I am honored and delighted to receive this award,” said Greenfield, who has been widely recognized for her longstanding role as a mentor and her mentoring advocacy and support. “Mentoring is a key priority in medicine and it extends to those in research and to those pursuing clinical careers. Everyone needs someone to mentor them and help them take the next steps in their career path.”

The Hauser Mentorship Awards was announced prior to the Mysell Lecture on Harvard Psychiatry Research Day, Wednesday, March 9. This year’s Mysell Lecture was presented over Zoom.

The Hauser Mentorship Award is named in honor of Stuart T. Hauser, MD, PhD, professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and president of the Judge Baker Children’s Center. He was nationally and internationally known for his work in adolescent development and his focus on resilience to adversity.

Hauser’s career in mentoring “across generations” was most clearly and memorably expressed in his work and leadership in what is now formally renamed, in his memory, the Stuart T. Hauser, MD, PhD Harvard Clinical Research Training Program (CRTP) in Biological and Social Psychiatry.

The Hauser Mentorship Award was first presented in 2012.

Greenfield is a member of the board of directors of the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry, the American Psychiatric Association’s Council on Addiction Psychiatry, chair of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) Clinical Trial Network’s Gender Special Interest Group, and a member of the NIDA National Advisory Council on Drug Abuse.

Greenfield is past editor in chief of the Harvard Review of Psychiatry, a distinguished fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, and recipient of Harvard Medical School’s A. Clifford Barger Award for mentoring and the R. Brinkley Smithers Distinguished Scientist Award from the American Society of Addiction Medicine.
