The Stoeckle Center

Stoeckle Center Seminars

All Seminars, unless otherwise noted, occur on the fourth Friday of every month, from 7:45 - 9:30am in the Simches Conference Room 3120. A light breakfast is provided.

Stoeckle Center Seminars are made possible thanks to the continued and generous support of Phyllis and Robert Green.

These morning seminars are offered monthly and are open to physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, administrators, and medicine/pediatric residents. Invited speakers are frequently experts with national reputations, and the conference has allowed recognition of MGH “best practices” within our primary care community. The seminars are attended by an average of 40-50 participants, and evaluations have demonstrated a very positive response.
