We invest in education and training to support the professional growth of our entire hospital learning community.

From our roots as the original teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School to the founding of the MGH Institute of Health Professions, Massachusetts General Hospital has long been dedicated to educating the next generation of health care trailblazers. We’re building on that success through education and training that support the continual development of every member of our hospital community.

  • More than 10,000 Mass General clinicians remain at the leading edge of their fields through our continuing medical education and professional development courses taught by experts in all areas of health care.
  • Every year, some 200 Harvard Medical School students and 2,800 nursing and health professional students are on rotation throughout the hospital, enriching the care they deliver to patients at Mass General and around the world.
  • More than 1,300 residents and clinical fellows benefit from our high patient volumes, multidisciplinary approach and robust research programs while training in our graduate medical education programs.

As a globally renowned leader in medical education, Mass General raises the bar for academic medical centers everywhere and helps shape the future of medical care. Our education infrastructure will continue to play a critical role — not only in times of crisis, like the COVID-19 pandemic — but as a vital underpinning of routine hospital care.

Imagine a future where … 

  • Care teams routinely step away from their busy clinical schedules to receive timely training on the latest innovations in their field.  
  • New knowledge is strategically shared via a curated mix of classroom and online learning, with focused practice drills that support system-wide clinical learning and care. 
  • Patients know their clinicians are regularly trained to bring the most up-to-date advancements in science and care delivery directly to the bedside.  

Thanks to our powerful advantages in history, resources, expertise and leadership, Mass General is uniquely positioned to bring this future to life.
