Our Person-to-Person approach to teaching medicine revolves around the patient. Before you can make a difference as a doctor, you first must appreciate both the remarkable similarities and subtle distinctions between individuals. That means learning to give each patient the respect and dignity thats due them as a human being.
It also means that in order to treat the patient as a person, you must remain a person too. Its that daily exchange of mutual regardwith patients, families, students, faculty and administratorsthat makes the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine a different kind of medical school.
Making It Happen
There is little diversity in the American physician workforce. The American Association of Medical Colleges and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine want to change that. The Office of Diversity Programs works closely with current and prospective students, as well as future medical school candidates to see that this goal becomes reality.
