Pediatric care

If you have purchased the MIT Student Health Insurance Plan (MIT SHIP) for your children, they can receive their care in MIT Medical’s Primary Care Service.

To get started, you will have to transfer your child’s medical record (and make sure the immunization record is in English), fill out a medical history form for your child, and choose a primary care provider (PCP) for your child.

Make an appointment for your child. The Primary Care Service is not a walk-in clinic. If you want a doctor or nurse to see your child, you must call to schedule an appointment.

  • In Cambridge: Call 617-253-1505
  • In Lexington:  Call 781-981-7080

When you call Primary Care, tell us why your child needs an appointment. This is very important, because it allows us to schedule the right kind of appointment and the right number of appointments. For example, if your child only needs a shot, they can have a short appointment with a nurse rather than a longer appointment with a PCP.
