About UMass Medical School
The medical school has developed a strong academic reputation and currently ranks in the top 33 per cent of American medical schools in federal research funding. It also ranks second for federal research funding among public medical schools in the northeast (New England, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania). UMass is consistently ranked among the top ten schools nationally in preparing graduates for careers in primary care.
UMass serves as a local, state, and regional resource, providing ongoing continuing education opportunities for physicians in practice, and maintaining strong community ties throughout Central New England. The wide-ranging research interests of the faculty are highly recognized and well funded by federal and private sources. A multicorporate biotechnology research center has developed next to the medical school, allowing collaborative research efforts for UMass faculty. The medical school provides a rich academic background for UMass Memorial's graduate medical education trainees.
