The UPMC Health Services Division Presbyterian Shadyside track includes rotations at a multitude of UPMC hospitals in Pittsburgh’s urban core.
UPMC Presbyterian Shadyside, the flagship hospital and academic hub of the UPMC system, serves as the central location for incoming HSD fellows in Allegheny County. This Hospital operates on two campuses located approximately two miles apart — known respectively as the “Oakland Campus” and the “Shadyside Campus.” Each of these campuses maintains a distinct personality and purpose within the UPMC organization, and serves a vital role in each community.
UPMC Presbyterian Shadyside is a level 1 trauma center that holds more than 1,100 beds offering comprehensive services in Heart and Vascular care, Organ Transplantation, Oncology, Orthopedics and more. In the near future Presbyterian Shadyside will embark on the journey of constructing two new innovative patient towers, one at each campus.
