Welcome to the University of Massachusetts Medical School, and to the Office of Student Affairs!  We are delighted to share this incredible journey with you, providing you with a supportive learning environment and guiding you through your years of medical training.  Our team works in partnership with your Learning Communities Mentors and the Office of Undergraduate Medical Education to ensure that you receive the academic and personal support that you need to in order to meet your educational goals, and to holistically support your professional development as a physician.  
Our office coordinates many events that will be memorable milestones in your career development, including the White Coat Ceremony, the Second Year Oath Ceremony, and of course, Match Day and Graduation!  Along the way to each of these events, we are here to assist you with planning your pre-clinical electives, Core Clinical Experiences, Advanced Studies electives both at home and away, transitional experiences throughout your training, and individualized career pathways, including 5th Year Options, and if needed, leaves of absence.  Your well-being and career balance are of paramount importance to our team; as such, we are committed to working with you to support you throughout your training.

Once again, welcome to UMass!  Please do not hesitate to reach out to our team with any questions about student life at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

Wishing you well,

Sonia Nagy Chimienti, MD
Associate Dean for Student Affairs
