The Mongan Institute is dedicated to achieving health equity and improving the lives of people with complex health needs through research and training in population and health care delivery team science.


To rapidly generate transformative knowledge that improves health care delivery, population health, and health equity through an integrated program of research and training — spanning data science to delivery science and evaluative science to implementation science — in partnership with local, national, and international communities, collaborators, and health care systems.


The Mongan Institute is a community of leading scientists and programs in population and health care delivery science dedicated to transforming health care and achieving health equity locally, nationally, and globally. The Mongan Institute's research and training program is based in the Department of Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital with collaborations across MGH, Partners HealthCare, the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (HSPH), and Harvard Medical School (HMS). Spanning data science to delivery science, and evaluative science to implementation science, the Mongan Institute is uniquely positioned to leverage the extraordinary research environment of MGH, as well as national and international collaborators, to solve the most intractable challenges in health care.

With over 145 research faculty publishing over 1,600 peer-reviewed articles annually, The Mongan Institute includes expertise in areas such as epidemiology, biostatistics, predictive analytics, cost-effectiveness, outcomes research, survey research, intervention and implementation research, health policy, health behavior and addictions research, decision science, primary care, behavioral health, aging and serious illness, global health, and health disparities research. In addition to its core research programs, The Mongan Institute provides a variety of cross-institute initiatives, including a research education and training program, grants management and administration, and a new cross-institute program in biostatistics and data science.

The Mongan Institute offers an academic home and collaborative research expertise across MGH's clinical departments as a component of MGH's Division of Clinical Research and through collaborations with HSPH and HMS's affiliated research programs. Among our greatest priorities is training, developing, and supporting the next generation of translational population and health care delivery team scientists through seminars, training programs, research fellowships, and mentored research opportunities.
