Mass General has been at the forefront of medical and scientific innovation. The research budget at Mass General exceeded $1B in 2019, making Mass General home to the largest hospital-based research program in the United States. While this alone affords one a wide array of options, a key feature of the Mass General Next-Gen Physician Scientist programs enables those who have not previously had expansive research opportunities previously or would like to learn new techniques/enter a different field to have protected research time.
