Our Mission

The University of Pittsburgh Internal Medicine Residency Training Program is committed to recruiting, supporting and retaining outstanding residents from diverse ethnic, gender, sexual orientation, and racial backgrounds with the core belief that diversity drives excellence in the physician workforce. Our program has access to multiple resources to help foster an inclusive environment for trainees and faculty:

Health Sciences Diversity at the University of Pittsburgh

Minority Housestaff Association of UPMC

Pride Health

Vibrant Pittsburgh

2016-2017 is the Year of Diversity at the University of Pittsburgh!

Career Education and Enhancement for Health Care Research Diversity (CEED) program

UPMC Center for Engagement and Inclusion

Our residents also have the opportunity to mentor medical students through our relationships with the University of Pittsburgh's chapters of SNMA and LMSA.

Diversity Committee

In an effort to increase the number of underrepresented minorities (URM) in our training program, we have created the UPMC Internal Medicine Residency Diversity Committee, chaired by Dr. Alda Maria Gonzaga. Our members include residents and fellows from all levels of training, and attending physicians from multiple divisions within the Department of Medicine.

The committee's main charge is to foster an environment of acceptance and celebration of diversity, and to recruit and support trainees of diverse backgrounds and experiences. Focus includes life in Pittsburgh, networking, mentorship and professional support.
