A Different Kind of
Medical school has always challenged the brightest and best-prepared minds. At the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, we created a curriculum to teach and train doctors to be better prepared to handle the realities of a new era in medicine.
Our curriculum places emphasis on both the science and the humanity of medicine throughout all four years of your study. It begins with a basic trustthat every patient is a person first, every student is a peer, and that healing demands a full and present response from everyone involved.
We sustain ourselves and our commitment to this revolutionary Person-to-Person approach by practicing on each other. You will find this mutual respect and shared sense of purpose to be both welcome and contagious.
