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
With more than 12,000 employees and an annual budget of over $2 billion, Baystate Health serves more than 800,000 people—an extremely diverse and largely under-served population in both inner city and rural areas of western Massachusetts.
Excellence in Patient Care, Education and Research
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
- Busiest emergency department in Massachusetts and the only Level 1 trauma center in the region
- Three urban health centers
- Network of over 80 medical practices
National Reputation—Personal Attention
We have the national reputation and diversity of opportunities that come from being a large tertiary medical center.
But, with our small classes, you will have the hands-on learning seen more commonly in smaller settings.
We are national experts in population health, clinical effectiveness, and outcomes research.
We're Ready to Share our Experience
We have been involved in medical education for more than a century.
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.
This year, we welcomed 21 medical students into the inaugural class of our PURCH Track—a focus on rural and urban health care, and population health.
