Clinical Care

Clinical services include adult and adolescent primary care, cancer screenings, cardiovascular risk assessment, comprehensive medical evaluation, depression screening, geriatric assessment, longitudinal coordinated care, medical consultation services, patient education, preventive health maintenance, routine physical examinations, school health and employment examinations, travel medicine, infectious disease management, and immunizations. Multiple faculty also care for hospitalized patients in the in-patient service. 

We are actively involved in UMass Memorial Health's population health initiatives. This includes quality metrics measured through commercial and government payers. The division has a significant footprint in our Accountable Care Organization and is a critical partner for the ACO and Primary Care First Initiatives. We have continued to be a leader in population health efforts and work closely with the Office of Clinical Integration to promote panel management and value-based care.   

The division works with complex patients who benefit most from preventive medicine and complex chronic disease management philosophies that are promoted by these programs, allowing for the division to be an important driver of these initiatives. These programs have been successful, both in improved outcomes and in health care savings.  

We provide quality primary care to our community's adult population that is comprehensive, accessible, and patient-centered. The division demonstrates leadership in primary care medicine by fostering research and other scholarly activities and continues to play a central role in the education of medical students, residents, and other health care providers. We provide guidance and leadership in healthcare delivery and quality improvement in ambulatory medicine.
