The UMMS is the Commonwealth’s only public academic health science center, with three graduate schools – the School of Medicine, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and Graduate School of Nursing. 

UMMS is flourishing and increasing its renown, both here at home and around the globe.  It is consistently ranked by US News & World Report as one of the leading institutions in the nation for primary care education.  In addition, UMMS researchers have produced noteworthy advances in basic and clinical research, including in HIV, cancer, diabetes, infectious disease, and in understanding the molecular basis of disease. 

Faculty, students and staff at UMMS are committed to making an impact on health and well-being in the commonwealth and around the globe.  Every day in large ways and in small our institutional community is actively and passionately engaged, undertaking numerous and varied outreach initiatives with partners in the academic, business and philanthropic fields.

By working with schools, community groups and social service organizations, UMMS has extended its reach into places where we can truly make a difference.  By creating and sustaining relationships with the social and cultural fabric of the region—and, indeed, much of the world—we provide both real-world help and role models for the next generation of nurses, doctors, researchers and leaders.

The examples given are just a partial measure the of University of Massachusetts Medical School’s Impact.  By no means is this a comprehensive list
