McManus, Dave

Welcome from our Chair, David McManus, MD, ScM 

 

It is with pride and enthusiasm that I welcome you to the Department of Medicine at the UMass Chan Medical School and University of Massachusetts Memorial Health. 


The Department of Medicine’s vision is to be the national leader in the delivery of innovative and high-quality patient care, education programs and in transformative basic and clinical research. 

 
 

Our mission is informed by the following five core values:

  • Putting the Patient at the Center of All We Do

  • Discovery, Innovation, and Scholarship

  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

  • Teamwork

  • Professionalism and Accountability

Our Department has 16 Divisions and includes over 400 active faculty members. We care deeply about each other, our community, and are dogged in our advocacy for our patients. Our world-class faculty are developing innovative approaches for the prevention and treatment of disease through internationally recognized and world-class research programs, including a new Program in Digital Medicine. The Department of Medicine secured over $119 million in funding across 76 separate awards in 2020. We contribute to a vibrant academic community at UMass Chan, where we rank in the top 30 of NIH-funded academic institutions 


Our clinical partner, UMass Memorial Health, is the largest healthcare system in Central and Western Massachusetts, featuring three acute care hospitals, and a wide array of clinical services ranging the entire continuum of care. 


We are proud of our team and welcome you to explore our website. Here you can view more about the Department, our faculty, our research, our clinical partner, and the many educational opportunities we have available.
