MIT Sloan students working on an Action Learning project at MGH.

Any student currently enrolled in an MIT degree program can register for the MIT Healthcare Certificate. 

The program is built on MIT’s culture of interdisciplinary collaboration, innovative teaching, and rich action-learning experiences. The Certificate provides the foundational knowledge and hands-on industry experience students need to pursue health industry careers. Our students have gone on to positions across the healthcare ecosystem, from healthcare consulting and managing delivery systems, to entrepreneurship, to work in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.


Use the Healthcare Certificate’s innovative curriculum and flexible structure to explore your health-related interests. To earn the Healthcare Certificate, complete two required courses, and electives totaling at least 18 units. Courses cannot be taken pass/fail.

Required courses


Our goal is to be flexible in approving electives, allowing you to pursue your specific interests in healthcare. You may request approval to participate in relevant courses at Sloan, as well as in other MIT departments. You may also request permission to use an Action Learning Lab or other project-based class in place of an elective, provided that the project is in healthcare.
