In the recently-released
2023 rankings by US News and World Report, UMass Chan Medical School came in 10th in the nation for primary care education! Read it here!

Beginning in January 2022, our residency decided to make Martin Luther King's birthday an annual DAY ON instead of a day off and we all volunteered at several community agencies. While we were helping out we learned more about what each one does for the community, and we paved the road for future involvement with the residency.  Some of the organizations we assisted included JUMP Central, the Montachusett Recovery Club and Restoration Recovery, among others!
