Here are a few highlights about our innovation program:

  • Our residency is community based and community engaged.
  • Our inpatient training is conducted at the Leominster campus community hospital, UMass Memorial HealthAlliance-Clinton Hospital, and is unopposed by other residency programs.
  • We recognize the importance of family and quality of life for our residents.
  • We have worked closely with the American Osteopathic Association for over 30 years and have Osteopathic Recognition through ACGME.
  • Our new clinical facility opened in 2014 offering state of the art design for team-based care and resident instruction.
  • Integrated Behavioral Health, which includes Psychologists as well as a Psychiatrist, improves patient care and resident education.
  • We were among the first residencies to provide MAT training to residents, and it continues to be an important component of our clinical services.
  • We have recently expanded our clinical offerings in LBGTQ+ services.
  • We provide specialized care in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, Obesity Medicine, and Diabetes.

Our goal is to train a cohort of compassionate and highly skilled Family Medicine physicians ready to join any type of Family Medicine practice. Learn more about our residency curriculum here and under the Program Highlights section above.

Beginning in January 2022, Fitchburg Family Medicine made Martin Luther King's birthday an annual DAY ON instead of a day off by volunteering at several community agencies. While volunteering, we learned more about the services provided in our community and paved the road for future involvement within our residency.

Some of the organizations we supported included The JUMP Central through the United Way, Montachusett Recovery Club and Restoration Recovery, among others. 

Fitchburg was recently featured on Chronicle, one of the nation's longest-running, locally-produced news magazine shows - watch it here!
