Program Highlights

Innovations instituted at the UMass IM program include our predictable and controlled “drip” admission system; our 4+1 inpatient/outpatient rotation schedule, which allowed us to build “firm-based” resident communities with designated faculty educators and mentors; and a recent decrease in the intern cap to 8 patients.  Curricular innovations include an advanced Quality Improvement Curriculum, which includes LEAN training and independent resident QI projects; a supportive and comprehensive Wellness Curriculum; and training in Goals of Care discussions and Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS). Finally, we are very excited about our new Primary Care Residency Track which started in 2020. These innovations have put our program on the cutting edge of residency training and allow us to continue to achieve our goals of clinical excellence and resident well-being.
