In our quest for ever-better care, we recognize the importance of innovation and the opportunities that are brought by discovery and emerging technologies. In this regard, the McLean team is dedicated to developing new methods of treatment through research while educating tomorrow’s health care leaders.
As you will read in the Year in Review, whether talking about our clinical programs, research laboratories, lecture halls, or administrative offices, the people who constitute the McLean community are striving to deliver advances in psychiatry, medicine, and neuroscience to those whom we serve.
