Since its founding, the MGH has been home to people who are driven to make a difference – to better themselves for the sake of their patients. Whether that means earning a new degree, making a career change or learning a new skill, those opportunities exist throughout the hospital.

The MGH Institute of Health Professions (IHP), founded by Mass General in 1977 and located in Charlestown Navy Yard, makes achieving these goals possible for students through its degree and certificate programs focused on quality, equal access and inclusivity in health care. Building on more than a century of nursing school leadership at Mass General, the IHP’s mission is carried out in the School of Nursing, School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences and the School of Healthcare Leadership.

Our mission of educating the next generation of health care leaders is more critical than ever given the complexity of today’s health care system.
