Our Academic Mission
Each year, hundreds of students, trainees and providers come to CHA to begin or further their careers. They participate in a wide range of undergraduate, graduate and continuing education programs. A few noteworthy examples include: the renowned Harvard Medical School-Cambridge Integrated Clerkship for third-year medical students; graduate training in Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Psychiatry, Psychology, Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, Dentistry and Podiatric Surgery; and allied health training in social work, nursing, pharmacy and other fields.
This commitment to teaching and learning is also infused in CHA’s clinical delivery system. CHA is engaged in efforts to improve the care of underserved patients and develop new models that can be replicated nationally. Examples include the Patient-Centered Medical Home, now in place across the CHA system, and efforts to integrate primary care and behavioral health. At the same time, CHA’s Health Equity Research Lab is playing a leading role in identifying mental health disparities, with the goal of improving access, equity and quality of care for disadvantaged and minority populations.
