UMMS-Baystate Partnership

The University of Massachusetts Medical School – Baystate regional clinical campus (UMMS-Baystate) opens for the 2017-18 academic school year. This new partnership will expand the state’s only public medical school into Springfield and will be University of Massachusetts’ first regional medical school campus in western Massachusetts.

With the introduction of the Population-based Urban and Rural Community Health (PURCH) program at UMMS-Baystate, UMMS plans to increase its total class size from 125 students to 150 per year over the next two academic years. PURCH students will take basic science courses at the Worcester campus and complete their clinical requirements at the UMMS-Baystate campus. PURCH will provide clinical and clerkship opportunities for students who would like to benefit from UMMS-Baystate’s wide range of clinical settings as well as its expertise in population health and clinical effectiveness research.

This partnership has three goals tied to state and national health needs:


Expand access for students in Massachusetts who seek high-quality, more affordable medical education.


Expand opportunities to train generations of Massachusetts physicians in urban and rural primary care in order to meet tomorrow’s healthcare needs.


Expand our medical knowledge to reduce health disparities, make health care delivery more effective, and improve the well-being of our communities.
