Quality of Life in New England – Community Highlights:

Centrally located, Worcester is just miles from Boston, Providence, and Cape Cod with a short ride to the scenic Berkshire Mountains. The diverse city of Worcester has (9) colleges and universities including UMass Medical School that overlooks the beautiful panoramic views of Lake Quinsigamond. As the second-largest city in New England, it has powered a rise of booming technology, research, manufacturing, and healthcare industries. Although housing costs in and around Worcester are much more affordable compared to the immediate metro-Boston areas, the drive from Worcester to downtown Boston is less than 45 minutes on nights and weekend. Alternatively, many faculty live halfway between Boston and Worcester and benefit from a “traffic free” reverse commute.

Additionally, as a resident, you’ll enjoy an array of recreational activities including hiking, biking, skiing, and snowboarding or take an easy day trip to the mountains and pristine lakes of Maine, New Hampshire, or Vermont. The city has an outstanding arts & culture scene, and an exciting food district.

UMass Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion:

UMass Memorial Health is an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer. As the leading employer in central Massachusetts, we look to draw talent and ideas from individuals of different backgrounds and viewpoints. Kaye/Bassman has a tenured relationship with UMass HealthCare and have been retained, once again, to support them in their efforts to attract and hire talented radiologists to join the faculty.
