The principal strength of the Massachusetts General Hospital program is the significant time devoted to direct inpatient and outpatient care in a manner which promotes both meaningful responsibility and appropriate supervision. On the inpatient rotation, residents alternate through general medicine services, intensive care units, the Emergency Department and consultation services. Outpatient education is provided by the ambulatory care rotation, ambulatory subspecialty elective and a weekly continuity clinic.

Experience gained from patient care in both the inpatient and outpatient settings is complemented by daily and weekly conferences which range from formal didactic lectures to case-based interactive discussions. Electives provide time for residents to pursue other interests in medical subspecialties, research and self-designed rotations. A wide spectrum of basic and clinical research is conducted every year by Mass General residents and countless opportunities are available at Mass General and throughout the rest of the Harvard community. For those with an interest in international health, the Global Health Program complements traditional training with international health experiences.
