Partners HealthCare is deeply committed to educating health professionals, and is involved in this mission in several ways.
Graduate Medical Education is a major focus of Partners and its teaching institutions. Partners continues a long tradition of educating outstanding physicians, many of whom play leadership roles in all areas of medicine and health care.
Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, McLean Hospital, and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital are teaching affiliates of Harvard Medical School and play an important role in the education of medical students.
In addition, Partners HealthCare is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education (CME) for physicians. Our Office of Continuing Professional Development is committed to improving quality patient care through excellence in learning opportunities that address effective, compassionate and safe patient care.
Partners is also affiliated with the highly regarded MGH Institute of Health Professions, a graduate school founded by Massachusetts General Hospital that offers a variety of degree programs and certificate programs in its School of Nursing and School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences.
