Worcester Family Medicine Residency
Welcome to UMass Worcester Family Medicine!
We are a top-ranked university program with three community-based health center training sites offering uniquely different clinical and educational experiences. Faculty and residents work collaboratively to create a diverse, strong, and supportive community.
Like three-residencies-in-one, our health centers in Worcester (Family Health Center of Worcester and Hahnemann Family Health Center) and just outside Worcester (Barre Family Health Center) have separate match numbers and conduct interviews on separate days. I invite you to explore our website and learn about us. Select the health center or centers that you feel will best meet your goals.
And if you are a visiting 4th-year medical student who would like to apply for a Family Medicine elective at UMass, we are happy to consider you. Click here for more info!
We are committed to resident-centered education and provide the resources and flexibility to help you reach your full potential. Come share our passion for Family Medicine at UMass!
