    "Coming from a family of doctors, medicine was a first love for me, and UMass Med has kept that flame ablaze. As a perfect amalgamation of education, training, research and a caring environment comprising top-notch faculty and enthusiastic residents, UMass offers a complete package. The internal medicine program offers world-class training with a resident-driven patient care system that makes us confident and learned physicians, ready to take on what might come our way. Truly, coming here has been special and the training and love shall be engrained in me forever."

    "The emergency medicine residency program here was my first choice. We have a high acuity fast paced department in a Level 1 Trauma Center, which is exceptional for learning and growth as a physician. Beyond that, I think it’s important to find your people. Not only does each field have its own personality, but so does each program. The people here were a driving reason for me to stay, but I was lucky to find a great location and a great program on top of that."

  • Lidia Spaho, MD

     

     

    "When searching for residencies, I sought a tertiary center that would expose me to the complexities of medicine as well as the routine cases, would give me the opportunity for research and would enable me to grow as a physician. After three years of internal medicine residency and two years of gastroenterology fellowship, I can wholeheartedly say that UMass Medical School and UMass Memorial have provided me with all of the above and more. I would pick UMass again and again because the mentorship, training environment and the sense of family among residents are unparalleled."

  • Robert Le, MD

     

     

    "What I think really allows UMass Medical School to stand out is that we have the privilege of taking care of a diversity of patients in our community at large. At the same time, we are privileged to have a very supportive, collegial community in our residencies themselves. Our Central Massachusetts community is a unique blend of blue-collar workers, immigrants and others from all walks of life. Our residency communities are, likewise, include a mix of some of the brightest, most motivated, quirky and fun friends that I have met."
