Our staff works closely with departments and clinical areas throughout UMMC to keep referring physicians and their office staffs updated with current, relevant information.

More information about making referrals can be found online here.

Information, Resources for Referring Physicians

To keep referring providers up to date with the specialists and procedures available at UMMC, we offer a number of convenient services. Our team will:

  • Visit provider offices: Our liaisons travel throughout the state visiting physician offices to give updates, answer questions, and assist with specific concerns.
  • Bring UMMC physicians to visit: Our specialists are available to meet at physician offices to learn more about their patients’ needs and to collaborate on ways UMMC may be able to help.
  • Provide information for CMEs and other educational opportunities: The Office of Physician Relations coordinates with UMMC’s Division of Continuing Health Professional Education to bring timely training and education to our UMMC physicians and referring providers. Learn more here.
  • Assist with clinical trials: Our team can provide assistance for patients who may benefit from clinical trials. We can help physicians with information about available trials and their enrollment processes.
  • Listen to you: We want to know how we can best serve you. We value feedback about all experiences with UMMC, our physicians, other clinical teams, and staff. Let us know what’s working and where we have room for improvement. Contact us at opr@umc.edu.
