UMass Chan Medical School in Worcester and Lahey Hospital and Medical Center of Burlington have signed a letter of intent to establish a regional campus at Lahey Hospital. 

The first UMass Chan-Lahey students are expected to be enrolled in the summer of 2024, according to a Thursday press release. 

A formal agreement must be completed and the medical school’s accrediting bodies must approve the deal before plans move forward. 

A joint task force, co-chaired by Anne Larkin, vice provost and senior associate dean for educational affairs at UMass Chan, and Anne Mosenthal, chief academic officer at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center will launch a planning process with the goal of establishing a new institute for healthcare delivery science and a quantitative science research hub, to advance innovation in digital medicine, population health, and healthcare delivery. 

“Training the next generation of healthcare leaders and meeting the diverse needs of our patients and communities long into the future require that we approach medical education in new and innovative ways,” David Longworth, president of Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, said in the press release.

In 2015, UMass Chan announced its first regional campus in Springfield with Baystate Health. It opened to students for the 2017-18 academic year.
