The Training Institute at Home Base: a Welcome Back Veterans education initiative to heal the invisible wounds of war.

Team of Soldiers

The Training Institute at Home Base

Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Program works to heal the invisible wounds of war for Post-9/11 Veterans, Service Members and their Families through world-class clinical care, wellness, education and research. The Training Institute at Home Base develops and showcases a range of trainings that teach healthcare professionals across the nation how to better recognize and treat the invisible wounds of war.

As more Post-9/11 Veterans choose to receive health care outside the VA, it is critical that community clinicians are prepared. As a community service, the Training Institute at Home Base offers CME/CE/CEU certified on-line and in-person training at no charge to clinicians, health care professionals and community members. The Training Institute at Home Base is funded through a grant from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation and Major League Baseball.
