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
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.
