Residencies and Fellowships

UPMC Medical Education (UPMC ME) is committed to fostering a collegial atmosphere within its academic community. We draw upon the unique skills, knowledge and life experiences of our diverse, accomplished and dedicated residents and fellows. We are well-known for a welcoming culture that expects excellence, and provides the strong support that enables each individual to achieve their life goals.

A fundamental ethic of medicine is respect for each individual. Resident physicians are first and foremost learners, and their needs are the primary determinant of any assigned patient care activities. As learners, resident physicians are accorded the highest priority in fulfilling the demands of their educational program. They are afforded opportunities to meet personal and family obligations, to pursue recreational activities, and to obtain adequate rest. At UPMC, a core commitment of our institutions and program faculty is providing the best resident education experiences as we provide high quality, safe patient care.

Located in vibrant and culturally diverse Pittsburgh, and built upon a broad foundation of over 180 specialty programs, UPMC is a global enterprise poised at the frontiers of advanced clinical medicine, research and medical education. We invite you to explore our programs and discover the many available opportunities to share our vision for a new tomorrow.
