For over 50 years Berkshire Medical Center has provided undergraduate and graduate medical education to thousands of medical students and residents. We are very proud of the legacy medical education has had in our community. Many of our former students and residents have made the Berkshires their home to practice and to raise their families. Many first class physicians come to the Berkshires, in part, because of the value medical education plays in their professional lives.
At BMC we are proud to serve as major affiliates of The University of Massachusetts Medical School, The University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, and most recently Boston University. We provide a diverse array of educational opportunities in Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Osteopathic fellowships in OMM and NMM, Psychiatry and General Dentistry. All subspecialties in medicine and surgery are well represented and our trainees receive excellent hands-on personalized educational opportunity.
As a rural, community-based teaching hospital Berkshire Medical Center provides an experience that leverages the best of community-based acute care. In addition our trainees receive exposure to state of the art systems e.g. IT, quality/performance improvement and population health across the continuum of care.
I am delighted you are considering BMC as an educational site and have no doubt you will receive an amazing experience! I look forward to the opportunity to personally welcome you.
