The Office of Communications is the official source of news and information at the UMass Chan Medical School.

The OC is committed to keeping our colleagues, students, alumni and donors connected to the institution. We embrace a newsroom philosophy and develop original written, video and other multimedia story content that showcases the breadth and depth of UMass Chan. OC staffers identify and produce compelling stories relating to our world-class academic, research, clinical and community work. Those stories are told online daily @UMass Chan News ( and in UMassMed magazine.

Our expert media relations team works closely with journalists and bloggers to bring UMass Chan’ impressive people, stories and discoveries to audiences down the street, across the country and around the world. The OC media team strives to place faculty experts and UMass Chan news in top print, broadcast and online media markets. Our team members are former print and broadcast journalists skilled at making the pitch and interview process easy on faculty and reporters alike. The OC media team manages the communication process during campus emergencies. We are the main distribution channel for leadership and institutional messages.

The OC manages the official identity of UMass Chan Medical School. We offer links to official logos and language about UMass Chan plus our PowerPoint template. In our Help Library you can find an overview PowerPoint presentation on UMass Chan plus stock photography to complement your own projects and presentations. If you require assistance with printing, writing or website creation we are happy to connect you with reliable vendors.
