      Student Spotlight


      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.

      Student Spotlight


      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.

      The community at UMass is supportive and collaborative. Within the student body, we come from all different backgrounds and we quickly build a special camaraderie that fosters the lifelong friendships we make here. Medical school is no easy feat, but to be able to experience all the challenges and the triumphs with one another makes the journey an exciting one.
