UMMS Competencies for Medical Education

A Physician is first and foremost a Healer. Six attributes of the physician as healer form the organizing headings of this document: Professional, Scientist, Communicator, Clinical Problem Solver, Patient & Community Advocate, and Person. Under each heading, we describe specific competencies that students graduating from UMass School of Medicine will have demonstrated. As an educational community, we strive to produce graduates who will become caring healers both by assuring that they possess the requisite knowledge and skills and by strengthening their natural talents and desire to care for others.
