The Mission of the UMass Internal Medicine Primary Care Residency is to develop well-rounded physicians who will deliver the finest patient-centered primary care in diverse academic and community settings, and who possess the skills to adapt, evolve, and thrive in the dynamic field of internal medicine.  In combining a strong foundation in clinical medicine with personalized mentorship and robust training in leadership, medical education, quality improvement and scholarship, our graduates will be well-prepared for many potential post-residency careers.

The University of Massachusetts Medical School is consistently ranked by US News and World Report as one of the nation’s best Primary Care Medical Schools. We are excited to bring that level of excellence to residency training as well! We are a track in the well-established UMMS Internal Medicine Categorical Program, known for its comprehensive clinical training in a supportive and diverse educational environment. Our Primary Care Track has a separate Program Director, schedule, curriculum, core faculty, and NRMP Match. Our program, new for AY2020-21, was developed with the full and enthusiastic support of our medical school, office of GME, Department of Medicine, and clinical system, and has generated significant community engagement and collaboration. Our novel program emphasizes national educational best practices, balances educational and clinical service needs, and is innovative in its delivery of the core curriculum and experiences. With our “3+2” schedule and additional ambulatory clinical rotations, we offer far more ambulatory training (50-60%) than one would find in traditional categorical programs. We also insure ample training in the inpatient and critical care settings, as well as in medical subspecialties, to create well-rounded general internists. Supplemental formal curriculum in leadership, medical education, quality, and leadership prepares our graduates for infinite career choices. Lastly, our team of established medical educators are paired with residents in personalized mentoring models to support each resident with their individual career goals in mind. 

We are looking for smart, motivated, empathic, diverse, and collaborative learners to join us and help us build and evolve! We hope you find our program has what you are looking for in the next step in your medical training.
