University of PittsburghThe University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine


As a medical student, you’ve accepted the challenge of learning a profession that’s fast reinventing itself. The goal is to master the art of learning itself. The study of medicine is the study of relationships. Each course, sequence and year builds on your growing understanding of the human body and its interrelationships at every level. Throughout your four years in medical school, you will read about and experience the connections between basic science concepts, clinical practice and a range of interventions and therapeutics. You will gradually learn to see, feel, hear and think medically in real-time, while you juggle the responsibility of tracking and treating patients.

One class at a time.
Mike McLaughlin I enjoyed the block-it really allows you to focus whereas as an undergrad you'd have 4 or 5 different things going on at the same time.

I was so excited.
Libby Legnard What makes Pitt really cool and different is that they help mark the beginning-your first day as a future doctor.
