    Why the Woo? We do not have Plastic Surgery fellows or an ENT residency at UMass, which gives us the opportunity to participate in complex cases even as junior residents. I appreciate that the faculty are very receptive to resident feedback regarding our rotations from year to year- it is evident that their goal is to provide us with the best experience possible. Our art class may be one of my favorite activities we do all year!

  • Lauren Daly

    Lauren Daly, M.D. (PGY-3)

    Why the Woo? After doing a rotation here as a medical student, I knew that UMass was a good fit for me. The program offers a broad surgical and clinical experience with collegial environment and people that I enjoy spending my time with. The micro skills lab and the fact that the institute does not have an ENT residency to split craniofacial reconstruction with made it an excellent place to learn microsurgery.
    Research Interests/projects: Microsurgery, breast reconstruction, facial aesthetics.
