The Preventive Medicine Residency Training Program

The Preventive Medicine Training Program at the University of Massachusetts is a thirty year old program that has graduated 63 trainees.  The Program began as a two year program that focused on training physicians in epidemiology.  Over the years, the Program has retained its strong focus on epidemiology and epidemiologic research while expanding to include an MPH degree, practicums, clinical and research offerings in disease prevention and health promotion, community medicine, behavioral medicine, health policy and management, global health, community health education and public health practice. 

As part of the residency training, trainees are enrolled in the Worcester Campus MPH Program. This program is offered on the UMMS Medical School campus but is an off campus program of the School of Public Health and Health Sciences at UMass/Amherst.  It is an accredited Master of Public Health Program that the residents can complete in 2 years.
