Boston University School of Medicine was one of the first to connect the study of medicine with the care of patients, integrating clinical practice, education, and research. BUSM’s primary teaching affiliate is Boston Medical Center (BMC), a primary, secondary, and tertiary care institution with a busy inpatient program and a robust, full-service ambulatory teaching practice. This facility, along with a network of community-based health centers and hospitals, provides a varied and rich clinical experience for BUSM students.
