It's a Privilege to Care For Patients

- Work in partnership with patients, faculty, nurses, and other professionals as part of our team
- Build your knowledge and experience in an environment that embraces the strength of diversity and team-based care
- Hone your skills in Baystate's American College of Surgeons-accredited Simulation Center
- Work in an NCQA PCMH
- Develop life-long relationships

First You Learn, Then You Manage, Then You Teach
As you progress through our Learner-Manager-Teacher Model you gain more independence as you become more comfortable and proficient as a doctor.
- PGY1 - As a Learner, you build a foundation of clinical skills under the supervision of a PGY3 resident teacher and attending.
- PGY2 - As a Manager, you gain confidence caring for more complex patients, making decisions on your own as you collaborate 1 on 1 with your attending.
- PGY3 - As a Teacher, you refine your clinical skills and build leadership and teaching skills as you supervise a pair of learners.
We are among only 21 residencies chosen for ACGME’s Educational Innovation Program (EIP). The L-M-T Model is the framework of Baystate's EIP.
