    As a New Jersey resident, I chose to study at UMMS over my home state schools because of the groundbreaking health policy work that is being done at the state level and the great reputation of the academic hospitals in Massachusetts.

    I knew I had found a program that would not only prioritize my professional development into a future physician, but also emphasize my personal growth into a balanced individual. A year and a half later I can honestly say I feel so balanced and happy with both the professional and personal components of my life than I ever have before, and I don’t think I would have ever been able to find the amazing support I have here at any other program.
