University of Massachusetts Medical School
The University of Massachusetts Medical School, the state’s first and only public medical school, was founded to provide affordable, quality medical education to state residents and to increase the number of primary care physicians practicing in underserved areas of the state. Their mission is to advance the health and well-being of the people of the Commonwealth and the world through pioneering developments in education, research, and health care delivery with their clinical partner, UMass Memorial Health Care. Its network of clinical care includes community-based physician practices, home health, hospice, rehabilitation, and behavioral health services. Over the last two decades, UMMS has drawn international acclaim as a research institution with a significant and dynamic capability in translational medicine, as recognized by its receipt of a prestigious, NIH-funded Clinical and Translational Sciences Award (CTSA). UMMS researchers are at the epicenter of the development of RNAi – the breakthrough identified by Science magazine as one of the top discoveries of the past decade and the awarding of the Nobel Prize to Dr. Craig Mello in 2006.

A local, regional and statewide health resource, UMMS shares its campus with the School of Medicine, the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and the Graduate School of Nursing. Beyond fulfilling its core missions of health sciences education and public service, UMMS is home to a thriving biomedical research enterprise.  Federal and private research grants and contracts reached more than $290 million in fiscal year 2020, making UMMS one of the fastest-growing research institutions in the country.

Currently ranked in the top 10 percent nationwide in primary care, the School of Medicine maintains the critical responsibility to provide students with an accessible, comprehensive and personally rewarding medical education of the highest quality and one that optimally prepares them to excel as tomorrow’s physicians—caring, competent, productive, and fulfilled in their chosen career serving a diversity of patients, communities and the health sciences.

The school is committed to training in the full range of medical disciplines, with an emphasis on practice in the primary care specialties, in the public sector and in underserved areas of Massachusetts. In 2020, 44% of the graduating students chose one of the primary care specialties, 22% chose surgical specialties and the others chose specialties including anesthesiology, dermatology, emergency medicine, pathology, radiology, radiation oncology and urology. As the sponsor of educational and service programs in health care throughout the Commonwealth, UMMS is a local, regional and statewide health resource. It is distinguished from other medical schools by its unwavering support of public service, as exemplified by the breadth and depth of voluntary service and community activism of its students.

Other campuses are in Amherst, Boston, Dartmouth, and Lowell.
