OB/GYN Community Health Program

The Division of Global and Community Health in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology seeks to strengthen clinical care, enhance medical education, expand research that impacts policy, and develop sustainable partnerships in local communities.

Clinical Care


We provide reproductive health services to diverse and medically underserved communities in Massachusetts. We are committed to delivering high-quality obstetric and gynecologic care at these affiliates:

The Division of Global and Community fosters collaborative educational opportunities, service-based learning, and encourages the development of providers as leaders in the community. The community health centers are staffed by our core teaching faculty and serve as ambulatory clinical sites for our residents and medical students. Harvard Medical Students directly learn about addressing health care disparities during the 3rd year Obstetrics & Gynecology core clerkship. The Program also supports a Harvard Medical School 4th year elective, OB/GYN and Women's Health in Urban Community Settings .

Further educational resources and programs are available, including:

The Division of Global and Community Health seeks to establish research collaborations with local partners to conduct and disseminate research on pertinent community health issues and health disparities.

The Community Health Center Consortium brings together providers and leaders to develop initiatives that meet the unique health needs of the community. Faculty, staff, and trainees are encouraged to contribute and strengthen community health initiatives at all levels
