The elective program in the Department of Orthopedics & Physical Rehabilitation provides students with an opportunity to observe and participate in a clinical relationship with orthopedic surgeons. Students attend conferences at affiliated hospitals and participate in the surgical, office and emergency practices of preceptors who practice in communities throughout the state. UMMS offers two electives that require medicine and surgery clerkships. The first, recommended for fourth-year students who intend to pursue a residency in orthopedic surgery, is an in-depth course in musculo-skeletal disorders, emphasizing inpatient and outpatient emergency diagnosis and management of a variety of conditions. Students will gain experience in diagnostic methods, surgical procedures, postoperative care and non-operative measures. The second elective is recommended for fourth-year students who intend to pursue a residency other than orthopedic surgery, such as family practice, rheumatology, neurology, radiology, plastic surgery, emergency medicine, occupational medicine and infectious diseases. It is an in-depth and faculty-supervised overview of outpatient musculoskeletal problems that aims to develop skills in history taking, physical examination, and diagnosis and treatment of a broad spectrum of musculo-skeletal diseases.

experience has proven invaluable for students who are interested in clinical-pathologic correlations and who wish to gain an indepth understanding of the mechanisms of disease. Shorter electives are also available for students in surgical or autopsy pathology. In addition, strong basic research programs are available, primarily in the area of immunology. Laboratories in the department are investigating the immune response to viruses and cancers, antigen presentation, T-lymphocyte activation and T-cell development. Clinical research is focused on the study of varied aspects of pathogenesis, disease and diagnostic pathology.

The Department of Physiology offers instruction that provides students with a working knowledge of the fundamental aspects of physiology and a foundation for understanding the functional basis of human health and disease. The department seeks to balance broad coverage of many physiological subspecialties with an in-depth analysis of topics that are particularly illustrative of basic principles and methods. Course work begins with a consideration of the basic aspects of cellular physiology, emphasizing the functional properties of biological membranes, and evolves into an examination of the

systems dealing with integration in the central nervous system.

and Society course. The second-year Psychiatry course, part of Mind, Brain and Behavior II, surveys the major psychopathological syndromes and normal/abnormal aspects of development from birth through old age. Psychological problems that frequently arise in primary care medicine—grief, anxiety and reaction to illness—are also considered in detail. During the third year, a six-week required clerkship gives students an opportunity to further develop the interviewing, reasoning and communication skills that are fundamental to psychiatric diagnosis and intervention. An integrative model is stressed, emphasizing the biologic, psychodynamic, social and behavioral aspects of treatment. The department offers a Senior Scholars Program and a number of fourth-year electives, including advanced clinical rotations on inpatient or consultation units as well as experience in specialized areas such as law and psychiatry, child maltreatment and neuropsychiatry/behavioral neurology.

Radiation Oncology Re-established in 2004, the Department of Radiation Oncology provides radiation medicine to the region’s oncology patients and

tion therapy. Identifying the interactions between these therapies and radiation therapy is the focus of the translational research effort, with many collaborations promoted through the departments of Cancer Biology and Cell Biology.

serves as the academic infrastructure for radiation science for UMMS. Using image guided platforms with three-dimensional treatment simulators for treatment planning and execution, the department provides extensive brachytherapy services including all facets of genitourinary and gynecological applications to patients.

The Department of Radiation Oncology: is one of the largest in New England, providing state-of the-art clinical treatment service to cancer patients in Worcester County; delivers more than 34,000 external tele-therapy treatments to patients each year at the UMass Memorial Medical Center University and Memorial campuses and the HealthAlliance Hospital campus in Fitchburg; and houses an internal school for radiation therapy technology that has graduated 15 classes of highly specialized and actively recruited students since its inception in 1989.

Radiation Oncology houses the Quality Assurance Review Center or QARC, which is the quality assurance vehicle and data


management service for diagnostic imaging and radiation oncol-


ogy for the National Cancer Institute clinical trials program. Led by the department chair as its director and principal investigator,

The Department of Surgery has a long history of dedication to the education and mentorship of medical students. It is the aim of the department to provide a broad-based body of knowledge and basic technical skills that are applicable to all areas of medicine, with additional opportunities for more specialized study, based on individual student interest. These goals are accomplished in collaboration with several community hospitals throughout Massachusetts. The core third-year clerkship is comprised of 12 weeks, divided into two, six-week blocks. Students participate first in general/vascular surgery, where they have an opportunity to become an active and integral member of the care team. This includes not only the day-to-day treatment of patients, but also regular participation in the operating room setting. This experience is complemented by attendance at surgical clinics and offices, where students are able to assist in providing outpatient care. The alternating six weeks are spent on a variety of surgical subspecialties, including thorough outpatient, inpatient and operating room experiences. Enhancement of learning opportunities occurs through student participation in regular conferences and lectures. Fourth-year students are encouraged to enroll in a variety of month-long general surgery or subspecialty electives in order to obtain more advanced knowledge. Students may choose an individual preceptor or design a more formal subinternship. Selected students who are interested in pursuing a career in surgery may also choose to participate in a two-month Senior Scholars Program, accomplished under the guidance of a faculty preceptor and involving both clinical and research training.
