Greetings from UMass Family Medicine!

Now that the 2013 Match has passed, we are very excited about the new interns who will be training with our respective programs! And speaking of the Match, we know that the months ahead are full of promise and excitement for you as you prepare to apply to residencies this fall. Therefore, we thought it might be helpful for you to send you a terrific brochure called Strolling Through the Match, a great introduction to the 2014 Match from A to Z!

Our interns at their annual retreat last fall

Some other info I'd like to pass on: once again this year, UMass Medical School was ranked within the Top 10 medical schools for Primary Care in U.S. News and World Report's annual issue, "America's Best Graduate Schools" - check it out here.

Each of our programs is devoted to mentoring and teaching. UMass Family Medicine is also committed to global health and we have integrated a Global Health Track into our curriculum.  In fact, three of our UMass residents have just finished blogging about their experiences in Nicaragua as part of the Track and I invite you to check them out on the front page of our Global Health Track website.

Interested in completing a Family Medicine Inpatient or Outpatient visiting elective at UMass? Our application process for visiting medical student electives is now open! Click to find info about applying for an elective in Fitchburg and/or Worcester. Visiting electives will be offered on a space-available basis beginning after May 1.  A UMass Family Medicine elective rotation is a great way to get to know our programs!
