Pipeline and Recruitment Programs

The Emerging Professionals Summer Internship Program (EPSIP) is a ten-week, paid internship experience for talented underrepresented minority college students. This “pipeline” program is designed to provide students with the opportunity to explore potential administrative careers in an academic health science center. 

DIO supports the Office of Medical Education in the development and execution of the BaccMD Pathways Program. Selecting applicants from our UMass undergraduate institutions, the program contributes to the creation of a student body in the Medical School that will contribute to a diverse health care work force to serve the needs of the commonwealth, with a focus on primary care and under served communities.

Together with our UMMS and UMMMC Human Resources Departments, DIO provides local high school students with an opportunity to work part time, summer jobs in research, medical and administrative settings that earn them real-world experience and exposure to career options.  Launched by the United Way of Central Massachusetts in 2002, Building Brighter Futures (BBF) is a broad-based strategic initiative to help youth transition successfully to adulthood.
