Who We Are
Aspitha \a-'spē-(th)ə\ is composed of world-class surgeons and physicians who have trained and taught at Harvard Medical School, the Massachusetts institute of Technology (MIT) and Children's Hospital Boston to name a few. All hold leadership positions in the nation's foremost medical societies like the American College of Surgeons.
We are not simply content matter purveyors, but the originators and creators of it. From NIH-funded researchers to Editors of prestigious medical journals, we bring in-depth knowledge and experience in the science and art of medicine.
Aspitha's true strength comes from combining our medical skills with the field expertise of our partner colleagues who continue to work in their respective careers. By continuing to patrol our streets, serve in our armed forces, work in numerous federal agencies including private protection and commercial organizations, our partners are an inspiration for all of us at Aspitha. In deference to them and all our comrades at home and abroad, we espouse the credo: to protect that which matters most, the lives of those entrusted to us.
