For many busy professionals, it's easy for business concerns to take priority over personal well-being. But failing to identify risk factors and early signs of illness can have long-term health consequences.

The Executive Physical Program at Massachusetts General Hospital provides a convenient way to ensure your health and wellness needs are addressed each year. As a participant, you undergo a full medical examination under the guidance of a senior member of Mass General's Internal Medicine staff. We focus on wellness along with prevention and early detection of disease.

This program is open to individuals and as a sponsored benefit through employers.
