Primary Care Providers  |  Specialty Providers

One of your first contacts with UHS may be when you choose a primary care provider PCP; this is the person who’ll be responsible for the majority of your care at UMass Amherst. UHS's staff also includes specialists, providing services like eye care and nutrition in a convenient campus setting.

Browse our provider directory, below, to choose the PCP who best meets your needs. Then call 413-577-5101 for an appointment.

If you're insured by a health maintenance organization (HMO) or point-of-service (POS) plan requiring PCP referrals, you must obtain one for care at UHS. Switching your PCP designation to a UHS provider will help you avoid the need for referrals. Before coming to school, review your health insurance plan. If there are limitations, you may want to consider enrolling in the Student Health Benefit Plan.

You have the right to choose a UHS PCP, and to change your PCP at any time if other qualified providers are available. Read more about patient rights and responsibilities.
