International Medical Education

Students from the UMass Medical School (UMMS) have opportunities to benefit from global health experiences in settings outside the United States throughout their time of enrollment. Global health experiences include opportunities in clinical medicine, research, public health, community service, as well as cultural and language training. Specific opportunities include service learning in the FOM1 year, flexible clinical experiences (FCE) in the CCE year, and advanced studies electives.

Global Health Pathway

The Global Health Pathway (GHP) is a four-year curriculum that will prepare UMass Medical School (UMMS) students for cultural, clinical and research experiences with underserved populations both in the U.S. and around the globe. Applications for the GHP are accepted from interested 1st year UMMS students during the fall semester.
