CHA Academics

Teaching and learning is part of our DNA

People who join CHA find a vibrant academic community with strong clinical, academic and research programs. We are proud to have 700 providers on the faculty at Harvard or the Tufts University School of Medicine.


CHA providers are passionate about and invested in training the next generation of medical professionals. Many staff are involved in undergraduate, graduate and continuing medical education.


Our researchers are working to better understand health disparities and to develop new ways to care for our constituents. Many research efforts at CHA end in publication, stimulating national debate and influencing health policy.


Trainees helped launch the Patient-Centered Medical Home at CHA and the integration of primary care and behavioral health services.

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.
