Since the origins of our Family Medicine Residency Program in 1973, we are very fortunate to have produced well-rounded physicians. We are proud to have alumni all over the United States and in various International locations. Our alumni practice in all types of practice settings, including Faculty for residency programs and/or medical schools, Private Practice, Group Practice, Hospitalists, Boutique-type Medicine, Nursing Homes, and Government/Federal-sponsored Practices or Health Centers.

We have alumni that are currently enrolled or have completed Fellowships in:

  • Adolescent Medicine
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Faculty Development
  • Geriatrics
  • Hospice and Palliative Medicine
  • Maternity Care
  • Sports Medicine
  • Women's Health

Many of our alumni have chosen to return to our Residency Program, our Hospital, our UPMC Health System, or our surrounding communities.
