Medicine Pediatrics Residency Program At-A-Glance

Baystate Medical Center, regional campus of UMass Chan Medical School, is a leader in the national med-peds community—all of our medicine-pediatrics residency program directors have served in the national executive committee with the Med-Peds Program Director's Association.

Our residency program has a reputation for training not only exceptional med-peds physicians, but balanced and compassionate individuals. Our residents are frequently described by applicants as the happiest residents they have met at any program. We take tremendous pride in the education we offer to our residents, and we invite you to discover if Baystate would be the best fit with your career goals.
