Closely affiliated with Pitt’s schools of the health sciences, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) is the fifth-largest medical establishment in the world. Many Pitt students participate in internships and research at UPMC facilities, and hundreds of the University’s faculty members serve as UPMC clinicians.
UPMC’s Oakland facilities include UPMC Presbyterian and UPMC Montefiore hospitals, Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC, the Kaufman Building, Falk Clinic, the Eye and Ear Institute of Pittsburgh, and Detre Hall.
U.S. News & World Report has ranked UPMC in its honor roll of best hospitals in America for more than a decade. UPMC’s organ transplantation program is the largest and busiest in the world.
