The International Center coordinates International Observerships at Massachusetts General Hospital for clinicians, administrators and other health care professionals.
The International Center coordinates observerships based on the needs and interests of each prospective observer and the availability of professional staff at Massachusetts General Hospital. The International Observerships program is designed for currently practicing clinicians and is not suitable for students or individuals seeking residency opportunities at the hospital.
Observerships are informal educational initiatives for health care professionals who wish to observe specific areas of clinical care and / or administrative operations at Massachusetts General Hospital. Sample observership programs have ranged from 4-hour observerships within one department to month-long, interdisciplinary observerships that include many departments and faculty at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Please be advised that in an observership, visitors will not physically engage with any patients or advise on any cases; visitors will strictly be observing / shadowing our professional staff. Participation in our observership program does not have any bearing on any pending or future internship / fellowship applications. The observership program is not affiliated with any Harvard Medical School program(s). Mass General does not award medical education credits for observerships; upon successful completion of an observership program, visitors will receive a certificate of attendance (issued by the International Center).
