PURCH Medical School Track Featured on UMass Med Podcast

PURCH Featured on Voices of UMass Med podcast

UMassMedNOW: What do visits to a grocery store, jail, homeless shelter, and a car mechanic have to do with becoming a doctor?

A defining characteristic of the Population-based Urban and Rural Community Health (PURCH) track is getting medical students out of the classroom and into the community.

In a Voices of UMassMed podcast medical students Colton Conrad and Amanda Whitehouse and UMMS-Baystate Regional Executive Dean Andrew Artenstein, MD talk about PURCH's  pioneering approach to learning medicine:  introducing population health concepts—going beyond caring for individual patients to advocating for communities as a whole—at the earliest stage of medical school.
