    Information about Research and Education in the Department of Family Medicine

    Family medicine faculty are dedicated to medical student education at the University of Pittsburgh. They direct the required first year Medical Interviewing Course and the third year Family Medicine clerkship. The consistent theme through each of our educational activities is the care and support of the individual within the context of the family and through building relationships. Faculty participate in other courses to include physical diagnosis, medical decision making, ethics, and ambulatory care. Popular medical school electives include integrative medicine, primary care sports medicine, and clinical epidemiology.

    Graduate medical education is a major component of the Department and serves as the training focus for those entering our discipline. The four community-based Family Medicine residencies (at UPMC-McKeesport, href=http://mercy.familymedicine.pitt.edu/>UPMC-McKeesport, UPMC Shadyside, and UPMC St. Margaret) were formally integrated within the Department in 2006 and now are unifying educational structure and recruiting focus. Each residency site had numerous community based outreach programs that spotlight health and wellness. The maternity care educational program is the most developed of the integrated programs and is centered at Magee Women's Hospital.
