About Me

Dr. Heather Hirsch

I am Board certified in Internal Medicine and completed advanced fellowship training in Women’s Health at the Cleveland Clinic. My specialty practice includes internal medicine and office gynecology with a focus on menopausal hormone therapy, contraception and family planning, breast health, sexual dysfunction, and urinary incontinence. Fellowship training included an emphasis on scholarly activity, development of women’s health curriculum, clinical research and leadership. My clinical work and research centers on inequalities or unanswered questions in the field of women’s health, specifically in menopause and its role in chronic disease development and in evaluating the harms of over-screening for chronic diseases. My Academic work centers on enhancing women’s health curriculum for the fellow, resident, and medical student.

I current practice at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston MA
