UMass Medical School is a recognized leader in primary care education, and many of its primary care faculty care for patients of UMass Memorial Health Care. In October, both institutions are celebrating their commitment to—and enthusiasm for—teaching and providing primary care.
“I pinch myself every day about how fortunate I am to be working here, at a medical school and clinical system that really care about the value of primary care,” said Daniel Lasser, MD, chair and professor of family medicine & community health. “It’s never been more stimulating or gratifying to be a primary care doctor.”
In this video, hear more from Dr. Lasser and other UMass Medical School and UMass Memorial doctors about why primary care is so rewarding to practice and to teach.
