The IHP Advantage

As a student at the MGH Institute (the IHP) – the only degree-granting affiliate of  New England’s largest integrated healthcare system, Partners HealthCare – you will learn from faculty who practice at many of the country’s best hospitals such as Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Spaulding Rehabilitation Network. Our faculty also come from Greater Boston’s renowned colleges, such as Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The advantages to taking your prerequisite science courses at the IHP include:

  • Learning from practicing clinicians and researchers who know firsthand how the basic sciences required for admission to graduate school are actually used in clinical practice and research.

  • Accessing further academic support from trained tutors or lab managers when needed.

  • Studying and learning where you want and when you want. You don't have to log in to your class at a specific time each week. Our courses are organized into week-long modules that allow you to plan your time for reading, reflecting, and participating in each week's activities.

  • Personal technical support provided Monday through Saturday by our Office of Information Technology. Additional (24/7) support is available through the Partners HealthCare Help Desk.
