About the Programs

Our Internal Medicine Residency program provides you with opportunities to grow professionally, to expand your understanding and knowledge of the practice of medicine, and to acquire many new and lasting friendships.

Our hospitals have been national leaders in medicine since their founding more than 100 years ago. We have been listed among America's Best Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report, and we also enjoy a reputation as the region's most preferred healthcare provider, as voted by consumers in a poll conducted by the National Research Corporation.

We have earned a reputation for exceptional expertise in multiple specialties and have received numerous awards and recognitions.

Individuals in our residency program are encouraged to think critically and apply evidence-based medicine in a supportive team-based model of care. Graduates interested in subspecialty training receive competitive fellowships or pursue careers in academic medicine, hospital medicine and primary care. Our residents succeed in balancing clinical work, award-winning research, family, friends and outside interests. We invite you to visit us in Pittsburgh and see what makes our residency program so special.
