CHA Academics

Our Academic Mission

Each year, hundreds of students, trainees and providers come to CHA to begin or further their careers, participating in a wide range of undergraduate, graduate and continuing education programs. Noteworthy examples include:

Harvard Medical School-Cambridge Integrated Clerkship for third-year medical students
Graduate training in Internal MedicineFamily Medicine, Psychiatry, PsychologyDentistry, and Podiatric Surgery
Allied health training in social work, nursing, pharmacy and other fields

This commitment to teaching and learning is part of our DNA.

As a trainee at CHA, you can help 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.
