Osteopathic Medical Student Clerkships

Berkshire Medical Center is a Core Clinical Campus of the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine (UNECOM).  Since 2002, eight third-year students from UNECOM have spent their entire third year at BMC in their core clerkships including Internal Medicine, Pediatrics,  Obstetrics & Gynecology, Surgery, Psychiatry and Family Medicine.

Our curriculum for the UNECOM students also includes an Osteopathic Manual Medicine (OMM) continuity clinic.  All 3rd year clerks are assigned a regular ½ day clinic every other week for the entire year here at BMC.  Students see and treat their own patients under the supervision of a residency trained OMM/NMM preceptor.  Students see patients form initial consultation through follow-up visits and are able to build patient relationships and see patients through a complete treatment process.

We also have an active OMM hospital consultation service and weekly lecture/lab curriculum for all osteopathic students.

BMC is also a major affiliate of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. In that important role, it serves as a site for third-year clerkships for the University of Massachusetts Medical School in the core clerkships - medicine, surgery and obstetrics/gynecology.  In these clerkships UNECOM students work side-by-side with students form UMASS and routinely find it a very collegial and rewarding experience.

Additionally, fourth-year osteopathic medical students from UNECOM and other schools throughout the United States schedule sub-internships and elective rotations at Berkshire Medical Center.

A large number of full-time and volunteer faculty are responsible for medical student education.
