Most of your preclinical and basic science courses in your first two years are based at the UMass Medical School main campus in Worcester.

We provide certain pre-clerkship clinical skills courses at the Baystate campus in order to "embed" you in the clinical settings where you will be doing clinical training.

This continuity will acclimate you to our campus and faculty, introduce you to the needs of our patients, and help you develop a commitment to rural and urban underserved populations.
