Medical school education has always challenged the brightest and best-prepared minds. At the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, we teach and train doctors to handle the realities of a new era in medicine. You'll also find a long tradition of research excellence and training by a world-class faculty committed to mentoring the next generation of investigators. We are looking for highly motivated students to continue this tradition through our MD, PhD, master's, and certificate programs.
