UPMC GME Hospital Tour

UPMC GME Program Overview

Welcome

Welcome

Academic Medical Centers like the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) are places of healing, diversity, inclusion and innovation. As residents at UPMC you will play a central role in addressing the many generational challenges facing our community and our nation. Similar to Dr. Gladwin’s experience as a resident at the very beginning of the HIV-AIDS epidemic, and the experience of our residents in combatting the COVID19 pandemic, you will all confront unprecedented challenges throughout your career in medicine. You will face an aging population, the impact of the epidemic of obesity and metabolic syndrome, a highly connected planet suffering from climate change and emerging pathogens and antibiotic resistance, the health impact of addiction in all its forms, and the disruptive effects of computation, big data and precision medicine. At UPMC we have expansive, world-class clinical and research programs which target these great challenges. Our housestaff are among the most critical in our healthcare system to advance this mission. As one of the largest hospital systems in the top 10 list of NIH funded institutions, we are committed to translational science and to centrally involving our residents in innovative research. A deep understanding of clinical medicine and cutting-edge science prepares our residents for the medicine of tomorrow and enhances their competitiveness for advanced fellowship training and academic careers. We are very proud that our hospital takes care of the most vulnerable patients, with 25% of inpatients on medical assistance and 50% who are insured by Medicare. Additionally, our UPMC health plan is the largest provider of Affordable Care Act insurance in the region. Our programs merge traditional inpatient and outpatient medicine, fortified with leadership training and resident-run rounds, with extensive exposure to telehealth, clinical analytics and team-based population health management.

Ours is a true community of physicians with a common set of core values who believe in working together to move medicine forward and to uplift our institution, community and profession. When you join our residency program, you will expand your clinical skills while training alongside national leaders in all sectors of healthcare. You will treat patients with a range of complex conditions and presentations, many of whom travel to Pittsburgh for care that they cannot access elsewhere. And you will have the opportunity to join renowned physician-scientists who will mentor you in pushing the boundaries of medical research. After graduation, our residents pursue specialty training and successful careers in every area of clinical, research, and academic medicine at leading institutions across the U.S. We hope you will explore the rich and diverse programs we offer our residents, including vast opportunities to customize your training and access to the University of Pittsburgh, a world-class research university with the fifth-highest NIH funding in the nation.
