Prepare for graduate school in the health professions
The MGH Institute’s Online Prerequisites for the Health Professions provide you with the content and preparation you need to succeed in graduate school and prepare for a career in health care. Courses are taught by practicing clinicians and researchers, with examples drawn from health care. All of our online science courses can be taken with a remote lab if desired.
The future of health care will require lifelong learners who are able to self-direct and manage time, learn from and collaborate with others, and take leadership roles by advocating for self and others; our prereq students learn how to do all of these.
Applying to graduate school in healthcare can be overwhelming. We've created a mentor program to help students who are taking their prerequisite courses at the IHP navigate that journey. All registered Online Prerequisite students are able and encouraged to utilize this service. Human connection is imperative in healthcare and the Application Mentorship Program is one of the ways we embody that connection here at the IHP.
We invite you to attend one of our informational webinars to learn more about our courses, remote labs and other aspects of the program.
"What I have loved most about the online prerequisites that I have taken at the IHP is the professionals that I have had the opportunity to learn from. Each and every professional I have met on this journey has helped me grow...These professionals help you to become the best that you can be, even through an online platform. They have made an extremely positive impact in my life, as I hope to do one day for others."
