24-hour prescription refill
The MIT Pharmacy works closely with MIT Medical clinicians and other staff to provide comprehensive pharmacy services to the MIT community. To avoid drug interactions that may make medications less effective or cause unexpected side effects, we use software that checks patient medication profiles and flags potential problems for each new prescription.
