UHS has over 15 primary care providers (PCPs)! UMass students, faculty & staff, and their domestic partners, spouses and dependent children can access high-quality medical care on campus with our team of physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants who specialize in college health.

Learn about each of them in our Provider Directory. Then call (413) 577-5101 to schedule an appointment.

UHS PCPs can provide and/or coordinate care including...

  • Diagnosis & Treatment of Illnesses, Injuries, Acute & Chronic Conditions
  • Physical Exams
  • Annual Well Visits
  • Medication Management
  • Sexual & Reproductive Health
  • Gender-Affirming Care
  • Pediatrics
  • Health Screenings
  • Referrals

Students with HMO insurance plans who have a non-UHS primary care provider are required to receive a referral for care at UHS. Our staff can coordinate this for you. Or, you can switch to a UHS PCP! Call the customer service number on the back of your insurance card to designate a UHS provider as your PCP.

Non-student patients with HMO plans should switch to a UHS PCP with their insurance company before using UHS.
