Speech and Hearing Bioscience and Technology (SHBT) is an area of study within the Division of Medical Sciences, an administrative unit based at Harvard Medical School that coordinates biomedical Ph.D. activities at the Longwood Medical Area. Students who study in SHBT receive a Ph.D. in medical sciences. Understanding how humans communicate through speech and hearing requires depth in many disciplines. The strength of the Speech and Hearing Bioscience and Technology doctoral program lies in its unusual coupling of knowledge and skills from acoustics, engineering, computer science, cellular and molecular neuroscience, psychophysics, cognitive science, linguistics, and clinical practice.
