About The MGH Psychiatry Academy

Since its founding in 1975, the Psychiatry Academy has educated thousands of clinicians through comprehensive, sequential, iterative, interactive, and innovative educational programs.

With experienced clinicians on our staff and our close proximity to thousands of the world’s top clinician-researchers, our education is designed to be interdisciplinary, accessible, and relevant to professionals who seek to optimize patient care.

We are also in a unique position to understand the pivotal trends sweeping health care because we live in the clinical environment every day.

The makeup of our staff adds another advantage. We have experts in longitudinal outcomes, audience engagement, web development, educational design, video production, biostatistics, and more.
