Physician Services Division (PSD) Summer Residency Program

The Physician Services fellowship track will recruit potential applicants through the summer residency program.

The Physician Services Division (PSD) summer residency is a 12 to 13 week program.

Who It's For What You'll Gain

Practical health care management experience in various departments and practices throughout PSD.

The summer residency program will offer opportunities to:

  • Gain broad exposure to various aspects of PSD.
  • Better understand the role of PSD — as it relates to various divisions within UPMC — and improve knowledge of the structure of a fully integrated academic medical center.
  • Strengthen health care experience through work on various projects.
  • Observe executive-level meetings.
  • Improve management, leadership, communication, networking, and analytical skills.

Each resident will be:

  • Assigned to a preceptor at the executive administrative level or above.

Upon successful completion of the summer residency, participants will be invited to apply to the post-graduate Physician Services fellowship.
