Fellowships

UMass Memorial Health Care is the largest health care system in Central and Western Massachusetts. It encompasses the UMass Memorial Medical Center (UMMMC) and affiliated Community hospitals. UMMMC is a tertiary care facility and is the major teaching hospital for the University of Massachusetts Medical School. UMMMC is a certified primary stroke center, Level I trauma center and the tertiary referral center for Central Massachusetts.

In 1980, Dr. Edward Smith assumed Chairmanship. Under his stewardship and subsequent Chairs the department has grown steadily. Our current Chair is Dr. Max Rosen. The Department of Radiology performs approximately 500,000 studies each year and in addition to a robust residency program, offers the following fellowships:
