The Family Medicine Residency at UPMC St. Margaret was established in 1971. At the heart of the program is a community hospital run by FM residents. While FM is the only residency emanating from the hospital, academics are not compromised and include 3-plus hours of lecture and conference time provided daily. The active involvement of medical students from various universities, a strong tie with the University of Pittsburgh, the coexistence of a unique and highly successfull Faculty Development and fellowships in Geriatrics and Sports Medicine all serve to enhance residency training. Outpatient training in our Family Health Centers is exceptional as residents care for patients and their familities within a multidisciplinary team approach.
