The Happiest Residents in the Country
Year after year applicants tell us that our residents are friendly, approachable, and supportive—the happiest group of Med-Peds residents they've met on their interview journey.
Our residents like to get together quite a lot, inside and outside of the hospital. Whether you are new to the area, or just new to our program, it won’t be hard to find someone to show you around.
Here, the focus is on you, the resident. Elsewhere, it's common for fellows to dominate clinical training. But we have 22 faculty for our 32 residents—and no fellows.
Our Faculty are Med-Peds Leaders
All of our program directors have served as president of the Medicine-Pediatrics Program Director's Association.
Our Program Director and Associate Program Director are med-peds trained, and the majority of our faculty are double-boarded in pediatrics and internal medicine.
And, all of our hospitalist faculty are med-peds trained.
Continuity Clinic: All Ages, All Stages
Our continuity clinic was the first combined med-peds ambulatory training site in the U.S.
You will have your own panel of patients to follow for four years, coordinating care for babies, children, and adults of all ages, and across the spectrum of health needs.
You'll get wide-ranging experience: suturing wounds, performing skin biopsies, giving joint injections, doing HIV testing and counseling, as well as treating chronic conditions such as diabetes and asthma.
Yes, There is Life Outside the Clinic
And we encourage you to experience it.
Ninety-five percent of our residents say they love the outdoors. They want to ski, bike, camp, and climb. But they also appreciate cultural diversions—theater, concerts, lectures, museums. See what else makes living here so special.
We want to help you succeed in med-peds!
The Medicine-Pediatrics Residency at UMass Medical School-Baystate is ACGME-accredited.
