MGB + Mclean

Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH)

Located in the heart of Boston, MGH is the third oldest general hospital in the United States and the largest teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School. This 900-bed hospital offers sophisticated diagnostic and therapeutic care in virtually every specialty and sub-specialty of medicine and surgery. MGH has a vast array of resources as well as collaborators, and is a supportive and contributing environment in our quest for knowledge for the science behind the art and practice of medicine.

The MGH Department of Psychiatry

The MGH Department of Psychiatry has more than 50 specialty clinical and research programs that address virtually every aspect of psychiatric disorders including depression, schizophrenia, and a host of other disorders such as anxiety, panic, attention deficit, bipolar, obsessive compulsive, and post-traumatic stress.

All are complex, painful, often debilitating conditions that alter the perceptions, feelings and behaviors of those who suffer. “Psychiatry is a field of brain study and repair,” notes Jerrold F. Rosenbaum, MD, the department’s seventh and current chief of Psychiatry. “In decades past, the mind and body, or should I say mind and brain, were seen as different and distinct. Modern psychiatry sees them as one. Our organ of interest in psychiatry is the brain, and what a marvelously and infinitely complex one it is.”

Boston, a Center of intellectual, Cultural and Political Life

Home to scores of colleges and universities, more than 100,000 students provide fuel for one of the world’s great intellectual capitals. The city is full of delicious restaurants, beautiful parks, world-class museums, and cutting-edge music and theater. Bostonians also take pride in their professional sports teams: the Celtics, the Patriots, the Bruins and the Red Sox.

Boston has a terrific public transportation system, the “T”, which includes the Charles/MGH stop right at MGH’s doorstep. The beaches of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are an easy drive, and the hiking and ski trails of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts’ Berkshire Valley invite quick weekend getaways.

Whether you choose to live amidst the charm of historic Beacon Hill or Boston’s Back Bay, its vibrant South End, nearby Cambridge, Brookline, or Jamaica Plain, the atmosphere is full of opportunity to easily relax or play hard.
