We recognize the toll that modern medicine and broken healthcare systems exact upon physicians, especially those in training. Physician burnout and moral injury are real, and we will strive continuously to ensure that our residents are supported holistically and prepared to maintain resiliency throughout residency and beyond.

Living Here

Classic New England Vibes

From the heights of Mount Sugarloaf to the rapids of the Green River, the craft breweries and farm-to-table restaurants, the charming independent book stores and coffeehouses along the Connecticut River and in the hilltowns, there’s no place we’d rather call home!

Our residency is located in the heart of Franklin County in Greenfield Massachusetts. Close to everything, but next to nothing in comparison, there’s always something new and exciting to explore outside of clinic.
