The Department supports several fellowship programs which have been developed to address the needs of our local communities. Each of these programs are involved in medical student and resident education and provide additional training opportunities for our family medicine residents.

UMass Chan Sponsored Fellowships

  • The Geriatric Medicine Fellowship offered by the Division of Geriatric Medicine at UMass Chan is a one-year ACGME approved Fellowship for physicians trained in internal medicine or family medicine. The Division of Geriatric Medicine is dually situated within the Department of Medicine and the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, with fellowship faculty from both departments. This provides a diverse faculty and a variety of approaches to health, education, and research regarding older persons. Fellows learn the principles of Geriatric Medicine through a combination of longitudinal and block clinical care experiences in the outpatient, inpatient, home, long-term care, and subacute care settings. Fellows work closely with Division and other UMass Chan faculty and community resources, and have opportunities for teaching medical students and residents. 

  • The Preventive Medicine Residency/Fellowship prepares primary care physician leaders in public health and preventive medicine working with local and state health departments. The two-year long Program is designed to prepare physicians for a wide range of careers in public health agencies, community health centers, research institutions, academic medicine, and managed care organizations. Residents pursue individualized training programs aimed to meet their specific career goals, while learning a common core of skills and knowledge.  The Program provides flexibility in resident schedules and a wide array of training sites along with a clearly defined set of core requirements and performance expectations. 

  • The Sports Medicine Fellowship is a leader in the field of Primary Care Sports Medicine through education, research, clinical services, and community outreach. The year-long Fellowship trains 2 fellows annually and is open to graduates of ACGME accredited residencies in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and Emergency Medicine.   The program emphasizes all aspects of Primary Care Sports Medicine including illness and injury related to exercise, physiology, nutrition, pharmacology, sports psychology, and ethical/medical-legal aspects of exercise and sports. 

  • The Primary Care Psychology and Medical Education Fellowship is a model for training medical and psychological providers in integrated behavioral primary care.  The two-year, full-time fellowship prepares fellows to practice integrated behavioral health within primary care practices.  Training adheres to a practitioner-scholar model and is designed to prepare clinical and counseling psychologists to become leaders and advocates for integrated, collaborative healthcare. The fellowship is closely affiliated with the Department’s Family Medicine Residency Programs.

  • The Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship is a one-year clinical program that equips fellows with the knowledge, skills and experience to provide comprehensive, interdisciplinary care for seriously ill patients and their families.  We prepare fellows to become leaders and clinician educators, and support opportunities to train in quality science and research.  The program is accredited by the ACGME and trains one fellow per year.
