Bulletin boards and email are the standard means by which the Institute communicates with students. Every student is assigned an Institute email account, which students are expected to monitor, as many official or time-sensitive notices are sent via email. The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) must approve all posting of signs by students on bulletin boards. Any student-posted material not approved by OSA will be removed.

The Children's Quarters at the MGH Institute of Health Professions (IHP) serves benefits-eligible employees and students of the Institute, benefits-eligible employees of Massachusetts General Hospital, Partners Corporate, Partners-affiliated institutions and the Charlestown community. The Center provides high-quality, developmentally appropriate care and is licensed to serve Infant, Toddler and Preschool age children.

Whatever you bring into a classroom, please take out. Any materials/items left behind at the end of each day will be discarded.

The Mothers' Corner is a MGB program for employees and students at the MGH Institute, returning to work/school after maternity leave. The Mothers' Corner provides new mothers with the opportunity to continue breastfeeding while back at work/school.  We are fortunate to be able to offer an efficient electric breast pump in most of our comfortable, private lactation rooms. 

In 2009, The Mothers' Corner was awarded the Breastfeeding-Friendly Award from the Massachusetts Breastfeeding Coalition, a non-profit that honors employers who actively support their employees who want to continue breastfeeding when they return to work after maternity leave.

There are four Mother's Corner rooms at the MGH Institute: One on the first floor of the Shouse Building at the end of the lobby, one in 2CW on the second floor in the OT Center, one in the MGH Building 149 in the Navy Yard, and one in 1CW near the bathrooms. 

Do you need extra onsite study space? Email Campus Services at ihpoperations [at] (ihpoperations[at]mghihp[dot]edu).

These machines are located on the 4th floor, at the Information Technology Station. Any problems or issues please submit a ticket at Please see information signs in the workroom.
