Where we Practice

Internal Medicine/Pediatrics Combined Clinic

The University of Massachusetts Community Medical Group Practice at Westborough - Adult and Pediatric Care.

This office was initially established as a community-based Med/Peds practice in 1997, and then moved to brand new quarters across the street in September of 2008.  It is currently staffed by Drs. Susan Fine, David Remis, John McCahan and Suzanne Sprague.  It serves as the continuity site for all the Med/Peds residents. Residents attend clinic at the Med/Peds practice one-half day per week throughout residency, as well as two full months each year.  Additionally, many rotations allow for added time in the continuity practice

The office is located in downtown Westborough, fifteen minutes east of the University Campus. It serves the rapidly growing, socially and economically diverse communities of Northborough, Marlborough, Hudson, Shrewsbury, Grafton, and Westborough.

Internal Medicine Inpatient sites

University Campus

The 407-bed University campus of UMass Memorial Medical Center has a full range of inpatient services. The medical wards provide a mix of general and subspecialty care with 100% of the patients attended by our full-time faculty. Here, housestaff work in a variety of medical ward settings, two medical intensive care units (MICU), one coronary care unit (CCU), a cardiac step-down unit, and an active emergency department that is a Level 1 Trauma Center. As the tertiary referral center for all of central New England, this campus has extensive sub-specialty services, including Psychiatry, Addiction Psychiatry, Neurology, and Dermatology, as well as surgical and Interventional Radiology subspecialties. The University campus is a certified comprehensive stroke center and its cardiac catheterization lab supports one of the highest volume interventional cardiology programs in New England. The University site also has active renal, hepatic, pancreatic and bone marrow transplantation teams.

Milford Regional Hospital
Milford Regional Medical Center is a 121-bed facility serving the nearby community of Milford. Thanks to a recently completed expansion and re-design campaign, it features a state of the art emergency department as well as newly renovated inpatient wards and critical care units. The Milford experience includes a mix of inpatient wards service, Medical Intensive Care Unit, and night float. The two wards teams are comprised of a resident, an intern, 1-2 third-year medical students, and possibly a sub-intern. The Medical Intensive Care Unit has ten beds and is staffed by a resident and an intern. The patient mix here is quite different from that seen in the tertiary care center and affords our residents a community-based experience complementary to that of the Worcester campuses.

Pediatrics Inpatient sites

University Campus
The UMass Children’s Medical Center on University Campus is the only children’s hospital in Central Massachusetts comprised of a 30-bed general inpatient service, 10-bed PICU, and pediatric emergency department. On the general medicine team, a full teaching schedule of rounds and conferences supplements the hands-on learning and supervised clinical experiences of the inpatient service. Medical students participate in the educational activities year-round and enhance the academic atmosphere. The PICU is the only facility in Central Massachusetts that provides intensive care to children. Residents provide patient care in the PICU under the supervision and guidance of critical care faculty members in pediatrics. Pediatric residents are responsible for both medical and surgical ICU patients. Our house staff gain experience in the care of medical ICU patients, trauma patients and surgical sub-specialty patients.  Fundamental critical care knowledge, technical expertise and skills in the provision of psychosocial support to patients and families are fostered by the faculty and staff through supervised clinical care, rounds and conferences.

Memorial Campus
Located one mile from the University Campus, the UMass Memorial Medical Center- Memorial Campus is the regional perinatal center.  It includes the UMass Memorial Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and features the area's only high-risk obstetrical services with an active maternal transport program.  As a result, the majority of newborns admitted to the NICU are born at the Memorial Campus, providing residents ample experience in delivery room resuscitation and stabilization. Our NICU is very proud of its warm environment and collaborative atmosphere. Supervision in the NICU is provided by full-time neonatologists who provide on-site 24/7 coverage.  Residents also enjoy working with neonatal nurse practitioners, NICU fellows, NICU nurses, social workers, lactation consultants and child life specialists.  In the NICU we practice family-centered multidisciplinary rounds. The NICU has an active conference schedule. There is a lecture series comprised of core topics, journal clubs, M&M, and ethics conferences, among others, that the residents will be exposed to during their month in the NICU. During the nursery rotation, well newborn care is emphasized. Residents work with a pediatric attending who directs the care of well newborns, gaining experience in the management of common newborn issues. Furthermore, residents enjoy the experience of counseling families during the newborn period.
