Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The PhD program at MGH IHP is innovative. It is for currently licensed professionals in various health professions, with an emphasis on acquiring the skills and knowledge to conduct research for clinical rehabilitation. I am currently a physical therapist, and through this academic program I have met world-renowned leaders in research in various fields. I feel well-supported by my advisers and the faculty, and I enjoy discussions with other students who are in various health fields.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Associated with one of the best hospitals in the country, all the professors are really easy to talk to and very knowledgeable in their fields, the city of Boston is awesome! Cons: Expensive - the school and Boston, program was not always very organized or accommodating for student clinical sites, class size was almost too large for given space

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

The MGH IHP has the unique connection to one of the best hospitals in the nation, which gives students access to incredible clinical placements and recourses associated to the hospital. The school is located in the picturesque Charlestown Navy Yard, the school offers new and high tech study spaces overlooking the harbor. Faculty come from a diverse background of interests and specialty areas are eager to help and assist with assignments and career interests. My peers are incredibly supportive of each other and there is a “we are in this together” mentality. We help and support each other through the program. The school is also beginning to highlight the importance of working inter professionally by piloting a new class this semester with nursing, PT and speech pathology students.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The Doctor of Physical Therapy Program offers an incredible network for aspiring practitioners. MGH Institute of Health Professions is part of Partners Health, which includes world class hospitals, such as Massachusetts General and Spaulding Rehabilitation. The on campus and off campus resources are excellent; offering student a chance to work in practical career oriented environments. The faculty is also amazing, each at the top of their field and avid advocates of the APTA. The only difficulties with this program are the costs of living in the city of Boston, and for those that aren't accustomed to living in a city. But overall a great experience.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

The opportunity to gain experience through various clinical placings is the most significant pro for this graduate program. When making my decision as to which nursing program I wanted to enroll in, knowing that I would be acquiring clinical experience from the very first semester was very important to me as I wanted to ensure that I would not only learn but successfully apply the tools necessary in order to become a successful nurse practitioner. Regarding the cons, certain courses (such as pharmacology among others) could really benefit from only being available as a classroom course as opposed to either classroom or online.

Rigorous full-time program, but in a great city with a lot of connection to offer through the Partners Healthcare System. Many additional opportunities in Boston. Cutting edge technology. Anatomy @ Harvard Med!

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2014

MGH is a strong institution in the allied health field with a faculty that brings quite a bit to the table. I chose them for their reputation and professionalism, and have not been disappointed.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

MGH IHP is currently ranked 7th in the nation for the unique Physical Therapy program. Unlike every other program, MGH provides a paid year-long internship at the culmination of its program. This experience allows new graduates to continue being mentored for their first year in the field while receiving financial benefits at the same time! With such a renowned program comes a price (literally). I would not be able to attend without sufficient financial aid and scholarships. Furthermore, the location in the heart of Boston makes for expensive living arrangements.
