Resources

Residents receive a stipend of $45,000, plus UMMS health and dental insurance benefits and professional liability insurance. In addition, the resident is allotted $2,500 to cover professional conference expenses, travel expenses to off-campus practicum sites, and expenses such as books and supplies.

Residents have access to the UMMS Medical School Library, including on-line access (including on-line journals and books) and Lexis-Nexis which provides comprehensive access to State and Federal cases and statutes.

The Law and Psychiatry Program is itself a significant resource to residents because of its many activities associated with public sector mental health services in Massachusetts. The program, under a contract with the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health, is responsible for the continuing education and certification of all forensic mental health professionals who work in Massachusetts' inpatient and court clinic services.
