CHA Names New Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology

Dr. Tara Singh assumes role after serving in an interim capacity

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA), an academic community health system serving Cambridge, Somerville and Boston's metro-north region, has named Tara Singh, MD, as its chief of obstetrics and gynecology. Dr. Singh has served in an interim capacity since January 2023.

Dr. Singh has been an important clinical and academic figure since joining CHA in 2009. She has played a key role in medical education, serving as associate director of the Harvard Medical School-Cambridge Integrated Clerkship as well as the site clerkship director for OB/GYN, co-founder and director of the longitudinal Physician Assistant (PA) program, and rotation director for both Harvard and Tufts OB/GYN residents.

Recognized for her contributions to workplace culture and the learning environment, Dr. Singh champions interprofessional teamwork and collaboration. In 2018, she began a novel physician assistant training program—the first known model of longitudinal integrated PA training—and has expanded this program to include interprofessional learning for PA and medical students.

Dr. Singh graduated from medical school at Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia, Canada, before completing her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of British Columbia. As she completes her master's degree in health care delivery science at Dartmouth College, she looks forward to bringing her knowledge and skills to advance OB/GYN at CHA. She will work to improve access and ensure maternal health equity and care for all, while fostering deeper ties with other programs and services across CHA.

"Tara is poised to lead and grow our OB/GYN service," said Chief Medical Officer Jeffrey Hoffman, MD, FACS. " I am confident she will guide the department with incredible compassion, expertise, and vision."
