Safety and Security

The Institute utilizes resources and services from Partners Healthcare and Massachusetts General Hospital to support our academic and work environment. We utilize the resources and services of the MGH Police, Security and Outside Services to promote a safe learning and work environment for students and employees.

The Institute is located in a large metropolitan area. It is important to protect personal possessions and be aware of safety issues in an urban setting. The MGH Police, Security and Outside Services employ a well-trained security force to safeguard employees, patients, students, visitors, and property. http://www.massgeneral.org/police. For medical and security emergencies, call MGH Police and Security at 617-726-5400. All non-security related issues should contact on-site security at 617-726-0528. Report all safety or security incidents to MGH Office of Police and Security for investigation.

Through this partnership, the Institute develops and disseminates information and reports on safety, sensitive crimes and drug free campus and workplace resources. Through this process, the Institute complies with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act.
