Education is a core mission of Mass General Brigham

Mass General Brigham continues a long tradition of educating the next generation of physicians. We have nearly 2,500 residents and fellows in 300 programs. Mass General Brigham hospitals sponsor residency and fellowship programs in nearly all specialties and sub-specialties where they receive a rare and rich educational experience. Some of the Graduate Medical Education (GME) programs at Mass General Brigham are sponsored by a single hospital and offer comprehensive training within that institution. Other programs are jointly sponsored by two or more Mass General Brigham and/or other Harvard hospitals, utilizing complementary resources from the participating sites.

Across Mass General Brigham’s integrated health care system, trainees have access to high-ranking residency and fellowship programs in nearly all specialties—and many subspecialties—of medicine. We have a long track record of training expert clinicians and leaders in all areas of health care.
