MGH - Internal Medical Associates
MGH - Internal Medicine Associates (IMA) is Harvard's first student-faculty collaborative practice and has been in full operation since October 2010. We provide primary care and social services to patients both with and without a primary care physician (PCP). Patients with an established provider at IMA can receive after-hours urgent care. Patients without a PCP come for interim primary care services and support in locating a permanent PCP through our Bridge-to-Care program, facilitated by our student-run Resource Center. Our practice aims to (1) Provide affordable, high quality health care and health education to people in Greater Boston without a primary care doctor, (2) Serve as a bridge to social services and long-term primary care, and (3) Provide students with practical exposure to interdisciplinary, systems- based, primary care delivery.
Internal Medicine Associates is located on the Mass General campus on the sixth floor of the Wang Ambulatory Care Center.
Parking: Parking is available to patients and visitors in two garages with entrances on Fruit Street and in an open lot on North Anderson Street next to the Parkman Street garage.
