Office of Communications
Location: S4-228, Fourth Floor
The Office of Communications is the official source of news and information at the University of Massachusetts 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 UMMS. OC staffers identify and produce compelling stories relating to our world-class academic, research, clinical and community work. Those stories are told online daily @UMassMedNow (umassmed.edu/news) and in UMassMed magazine.
Our expert media relations team works closely with journalists and bloggers to bring UMMS’ 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 UMMS 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 Medical School. We offer links to official logos and language about UMMS plus our PowerPoint template. In our Help Library you can find an overview PowerPoint presentation on UMMS 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.
