East Boston students learn about health care careers at MGH Institute


CHARLESTOWN (May 2012)- More than a dozen freshmen students from East Boston had a chance to see what it takes to become a nurse, physical therapist, and speech-language pathologist during a May 22 tour of MGH Institute of Health Professions in the Charlestown Navy Yard.

The students, some of whom attend East Boston High School as well as other Boston high schools, saw how simulation manikins are used to help the graduate schoolís students practice their skills before they work with live patients.

The visit was coordinated by the Massachusetts General Hospitalís Center for Community Health Improvement. For the past two decades, the hospital has helped inspire hundreds of Boston youth interested in health and science careers with activities and employment opportunities.

The East Boston students were: William Angel, Theresa Buenrostro, Claudia Cabrera, Katrina Cruz, Erik Faiella, Dajuan Frasier, Juliana Grillo, Shonice Kilgoe, Arjanae Lewis, Brandy Mendoza, Nhi Nguyen, Lauren Reyes, Aline Santos, Kaouther Teurkia, and Bernard Xhullima.

MGH Institute faculty who showed the students were Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders Clinical Instructor Charles Jeans, MS, CCC-SLP; School of Nursing Clinical Assistant Professor Daniel Kane, MS, RN, CEN, CCRN, CFRN, EMTP; and Department of Physical Therapy Assistant Professor DJ Mattson, DPT, EdD, SCS.

MGH Institute of Health Professions, founded by Massachusetts General Hospital in 1977, is an innovative and independent graduate school in Boston that is a member of Partners HealthCare. A progressive leader in developing comprehensive models of health care education, the MGH Institute prepares advanced practice professionals in the fields of nursing, physical therapy, and speech-language pathology through a distinctive combination of academic study, clinical practice, and research. More than 1,100 students are enrolled in graduate level and certificate programs, with an increasing number of courses available online. The Institute is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
