Excellence in Education

We are helping to shape a new era in health care.

Scientific breakthroughs are advancing patient care at a rate unparalleled in the history of medicine.

Keeping our providers — who represent the brightest minds in health care — on the leading edge requires deep investment in their continued development and training. By nurturing their growth as caregivers, we ensure that they bring the latest techniques and approaches to transform the health of their patients.

With our powerful advantages in history, resources, expertise and leadership, Massachusetts General Hospital is uniquely positioned to model how investments in education can transform health care delivery.

We are the original teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School and founder of the MGH Institute of Health Professions, an interprofessional graduate school of health sciences.

Education helped us fight COVID-19.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced thousands of our physicians, nurses, researchers and staff members to model an intensive new approach to integrating education and patient care.

Mass General served as a public training resource to support hospital systems across the world in learning how to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

We shared a digital library of COVID-19 care resources, offered virtual grand rounds and other interactive dialogues for caregivers, and set a new standard for the dissemination of new knowledge and best practices to combat this devastating new disease.

Our success in caring for COVID-19 patients was the result of a rapidly mobilized workforce training plan, underscoring the critical role of our own education infrastructure — not only in times of crisis, but as a vital underpinning of routine hospital care.

We’re increasing diversity in medicine and research from grade school through graduate school and beyond.

Mass General has a long history of serving diverse communities and training learners from across the country and around the world.

Over the past several decades, we’ve developed programs that support and inspire young people from all backgrounds, giving them the tools to enter and thrive in scientific and medical careers.

Increasing diversity in the health sciences will benefit our students, our communities and the wider biomedical ecosystem. After all, a fully inclusive professional workforce will be best equipped to address the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

Doctor speaking to residents

We’re dedicated to educating the next generation of health care trailblazers.

Our goal is for all patients to rest easy knowing their doctors have been carefully and methodically trained to bring the most up-to-date advances in science and care delivery directly to the bedside.

Imagine a future where …

  • Care teams regularly take time out of their busy clinical schedules to receive “just-in-time” training on the latest innovations in their fields.
  • Knowledge is strategically shared via a curated mix of classroom and online learning.
  • Focused practice drills are designed to support everyday clinical learning across the system.

Education is an investment in people helping others.

Mass General’s training and education programs keep our faculty and staff at the top of their fields — and prepare tomorrow’s researchers and caregivers for professional success. We’re proud to host the nation’s top-ranked postgraduate residency training program for medical students.
