Educating the Next Generation of Health Care Leaders

As part of Mass General, the largest teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, we are proud to participate in educating the next generation of health care professionals. We have several Mass General residents at our practice. These physicians received their medical degrees from top-ranked medical schools and are specializing in internal medicine. Our attending physicians supervise the residents. Patients who see a resident as their primary care provider will find the attending physician’s name on their insurance card.
