Summer programs for undergraduates

Baystate Medical Center offers two different summer programs for college undergraduates who are residents of Franklin, Hampshire, or Hampden counties in Massachusetts. The program is based at Baystate Medical Center is Springfield.

Both programs focus on research, and are for undergraduate students interested in a career in public health, medicine, or other healthcare professions.

Three PURCH students in the Class of 2025 are former summer scholars. We're developing a pipeline and it’s working.
