The faculty and administration of the University of Massachusetts Medical School take pride in our school’s achievements in enhancing the intellectual basis for generalist education and the stature of primary care medicine. Our school’s consistently high ranking in U.S. News & World Report as one of the leading medical schools in primary care is one measure of our success in the area of primary care education and research. Our innovative partnership with the Fallon Healthcare System in support of the Meyers Primary Care Institute serves to confirm our ongoing commitment to this important area. In keeping with the ideals of the medical school’s founding dean, Dr. Lamar Soutter, and the Fallon Community Health Plan’s first president, Dr. John Meyers, the Institute demonstrates the value of collaboration between a medical school and a healthcare delivery system that should be emulated by medical schools and academic health centers across our country.
