About SHRS

In 2009, the MGH Institute of Health Professions formed two schools, the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences (SHRS) and the School of Nursing, in recognition of the growth and diversity of programming.

Faculty and students in SHRS are part of the Departments of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Physician Assistant Studies sharing a common goal to engage in contemporary and innovative learning experiences that will prepare leaders in our disciplines. 

Our students come from all over the world, bringing a wealth of diversity in ideas, cultures, and models of clinical practice. Our faculty bring an unparalleled expertise to their teaching and research, leading our professions in advocacy, scholarship and practice. Our programs are among the highest ranked in the country.

Our commitment to interprofessional education not only provides a framework for appreciating the role of the health care team but also supports learning experiences that promote optimal patient/client care through teamwork. In collaboration with colleagues in nursing and medicine, we continue to explore creative opportunities for students in our several disciplines to work together as part of their educational experiences.

As our population ages, as more Americans join the rolls of the insured, and as technology continues to develop new ways of providing care, our disciplines face remarkable and exciting challenges.

We welcome you to be part of an educational environment that leverages our connections across  Partners HealthCare, is supportive and dedicated to your professional growth, and provides opportunities for you to become part of a dynamic health care team.
