Residency Application Advisors

Residency Application Advisors are available to advise students who are certain that they are applying in a given specialty. Often the Residency Application Advisor is an initial point of contact and they will assign students applying in their field to an individual faculty advisor in the department.

Students who are undecided and want to learn more about the field, should contact their House Specialty Advisor: https://www.umassmed.edu/learningcommunities/faculty/specialty-advisors/
