The PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences and a PhD and Master of Science in Health Professions Education have been added in recent years along with two brand new programs: Master of Health Administration in Leadership and Master of Science in Healthcare Data Analytics to meet rising demand for highly educated health care professionals, educators, and researchers. Integrating classroom learning with research and clinical experience, the Institute grants doctoral degrees and master's degrees, awards certificates of advanced study, and offers continuing education to practicing professionals. New certificate and degree programs are developed regularly.
MGH Institute of Health Professions is the only degree-granting affiliate in Mass General Brigham (MGB), the largest private employer in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The Institute has been recognized multiple times by The Chronicle of Higher Education as a “Great College to Work For.” A leading health sciences educational institution, MGH Institute provides students with outstanding academic programs, many of which are ranked among the best in the nation.
MGH Institute of Health Professions has announced an organization-wide anti-racism initiative to think boldly about race and bring together all members of the Institute community to address systemic racial injustice as well as oppression more broadly. The plan seeks to create a supportive and inclusive campus environment and better support the diverse communities the school serves. We are excited about this new initiative and are hiring employees who are committed to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion and will contribute to our anti-racism and anti-oppression approach.
The Department of Physical Therapy offers a 3-year Doctor of Physical Therapy degree and a 1-year Residency in Orthopedic Physical Therapy. The DPT program is highly regarded and has an integrated modular curriculum that leverages active learning approaches to facilitate learning. We have a strong commitment to team-based teaching. An interdisciplinary PhD program and integrated interprofessional activities reflect the commitment of the Institute to interprofessional education. Our highly respected faculty is recognized for expertise as educators, scholars, and master clinicians, and for their involvement in leadership positions in the profession both regionally and nationally.
The department’s aspirational goal is to develop and teach our students skills to better serve marginalized and minoritized communities in order to address existing inequities. We know these communities have unique experiences navigating spaces that were not created for them, including hospitals and institutions of higher education. In our mission to educate future health professionals, we aspire to integrate anti-oppressive practice in our policies, practices, and all aspects of our work: curriculum development, pedagogy, clinical environment, community engagement, research endeavors, administrative practices, and everyday interactions with one another.
