He was been assistant professor of pathology at the Harvard Medical School since 1941. He is pathologist to the Boston Lying-in Hospital and to the Free Hospital for Women in Brookline. He was professor of pathology at Harvard Medical School and chairman of the school's Department of Pathology (1952 to 1968). A pathologist and researcher on human embryology. He also contributed to the development by others of the contraceptive pill and in vitro fertilization.

Arthur Hertig teaching an anatomy class at Harvard Medical School
John Charles Rock (1890-1984) was a Boston gynaecologist and human fertility researcher. In 1938 he began a collaboration with Arthur Hertig and the researcher Miriam Menkin (1901 – 1992; née Miriam Friedman). Both Rock and Menkin looked within the surgically removed uterine tubes and uterus for the earliest stages of human development the "products of conception". They were also the earliest researchers looking at human in vitro fertilisation techniques for treatment of infertility, what is today called Assisted Reproductive Technology or (ART).
Carnegie Collection - Videos
Within the Carnegie Collection as part of the Human Developmental Anatomy Center Collections are a set of Six VHS tapes of lectures given by Dr. Arthur T. Hertig who worked extensively with the Carnegie materials. The tapes include two each of: trophoblastic disease, malignant disease of the uterus, and ovarian tumors.
