Welcome to the UMass Chan New Hire Onboarding Website!


Deb Harnois - UMMS New Hire Onboarding Website

To All Our Valued New UMass Medical School Employees,

Congratulations on your new position and welcome to the University of Massachusetts Chan Medical School!  You have joined a mission-driven team, committed to advancing the health and well-being of the people of the Commonwealth and the world through pioneering advances in education, research and health care delivery.

Our goal is to provide both a supportive and welcoming environment.  We believe onboarding is an ongoing process that helps you understand the culture and expectations of your new work environment – while giving you the tools and resources you need to become a successful and productive member of the UMMS team.

We hope you enjoy this new Onboarding Website – please reach out to your Onboarding Team during your transition and beyond. Also, medical interns and residents should refer to the Graduate Medical Education staff for information because some of the information on this Onboarding Website may not apply.
