Help for Media Professionals

The Media Relations Team assists members of the news media with all of the elements necessary to develop and report stories at the University of Maryland Medical Center, University of Maryland Medical System, and the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Media relations staff members help reporters, producers and editors to find experts on particular topics, set up interviews and provide video and other materials. We have an onsite TV studio with 24/7 satellite capabilities for live or taped interviews with our experts on breaking medical/science news and timely health features.

Please state how we can be of assistance and your deadline. Messages are monitored 24/7; urgent messages will receive immediate attention.
