To meet the health care needs of MIT community members, MIT Medical offers a single, centralized source of comprehensive health insurance, care and treatment at its own medical centers, and an extensive roster of health promotion programs. Convenient, on-campus access to a broad range of clinical services and medical and dental specialties is delivered by highly qualified health care professionals. Affiliations with many of the Boston area's leading hospitals allow clinicians to refer patients with more serious conditions to the most appropriate specialists.
Visits to MIT Medical are by appointment, except for urgent care, which is available seven days a week from 7 am to 11 pm. The Mental Health and Counseling Service also has walk-in urgent care hours from 2 pm to 4 pm daily, Monday through Friday. MIT community members should call 617-253-4481 or 617-258-0656 (TTY) day or night for medical advice; for regular appointments, call 617-253-4481. MIT Medical is located in Building E23.
