School of Medicine

The University of Massachusetts-School of Medicine was founded in 1962 with the mission to advance the health and well-being of the people of the Commonwealth and the world through pioneering education, research, and health care delivery with our clinical partners. The UMMS educational experience will inspire our future physicians and physician scientists to excel in patient care, innovation, discovery, leadership and service.

Students are educated in a range of medical disciplines with emphasis on training for practice in general medicine and primary care specialties in the public sector. Our clinical partner is UMASS Memorial Health Care consisting of two acute care hospitals in the city of Worcester. Clinical education is also conducted at a number of affiliated community hospitals and health centers in the region.  

The MD and MD/PhD programs are open to residents and non residents of Massachusetts. Please refer to our Massachusetts Residency Classification to determine if you qualify for in-state tuition and fees. All applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents.
