University of Massachusetts Medical School-Baystate
UMMS-Baystate, the only regional campus of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, was founded in 2015 through an innovative partnership between Baystate Health and UMass Medical School.
One of the Largest Health Systems in New England
Get All the Experience You Need
Baystate Health serves more than 800,000 people—a largely under-served population in both inner city and rural areas of western Massachusetts.
You will treat an extremely diverse range of medical conditions. Last year, we had:
- More than 204,000 emergency and urgent care visits—the busiest ED in the state
- 1.7 million+ outpatient visits, including home visits
- More than 4,300 babies born
- Over 37,300 surgeries performed
Integrated Academic Health System
We can leverage our entire health system as a training platform:
- Full-service teaching hospital, children's hospital, and three community hospitals with a total of nearly 1,000 acute care beds
- Only Level 1 trauma center in the region
- Three urban health centers
- Network of over 80 medical practices
Excellence in Patient Care, Research and Education
We have the national awards for quality and safety that come from being a large tertiary medical center.
We are national experts in population health, clinical effectiveness, and outcomes research.
We have been involved in medical education for more than a century—and are recognized innovators and leaders.
Last year, our 10 ACGME-accredited residency programs and 20+ sponsored fellowships trained 360 residents and fellows. And nearly 300 students from 35 medical schools participated in one of our 40 electives.
In 2017 we launched PURCH—a track focusing on rural and urban health care and population health for UMass medical students.
