McLean Hospital

Since it’s founding in 1811, McLean Hospital in Belmont has been a nationally-recognized leader in mental health care.  Today, McLean provides care to over 9,000 inpatients annually, and offers a robust array of inpatient, residential, and outpatient levels of care.  Residents in the MGH-McLean psychiatry residency work on specialized units at McLean treating patients with psychotic disorders, bipolar disorder, and substance use disorders.  They also work with adolescent and geriatric patients in programs specifically tailored to individuals at those phases of life.  Read more about McLean’s rich history.


Located 10 miles outside Boston, McLean is situated on a tree-filled suburban campus.  There is free parking, as well as shuttle service to the Commuter Rail station less than a mile away.  Residents can enjoy lunch together outdoors, and the campus grounds naturally provide opportunities for fresh air and walks.  Belmont is a short drive from New England’s iconic apple orchards and breathtaking fall foliage sites.
