Institute for Patient Care Clinical Affilations Program

Clinicians in Patient Care Services at Massachusetts General Hospital have long valued their  role in caring for patients and families. The Clinical Recognition Program provides a way to formally recognize professional clinical staff for their expertise. Through the program, clinical staff from six disciplines in Patient Care Services analyze their own practice and can seek recognition for the level of practice they have achieved. These disciplines are Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Respiratory Therapy, Social Work, and Speech-Language & Swallowing Disorders.

The program recognizes that valuable contributions are made by staff at every level and that excellence is a goal common to all.
