A message from UPMC Hamot’s Director of Medical Education and Chief Medical Officer, Richard W. Long, MD.

Welcome to UPMC Hamot!

There is no career that is more exciting, challenging and gratifying than a career in medicine. At UPMC Hamot, we provide our residents and fellows with the training and experience required to create competent, compassionate physicians and surgeons who are committed to ensuring patient safety and quality of care in everything they do.

UPMC Hamot was founded in 1881 and has a long tradition of medical education, dating back to the early 1900s.

We currently offer:

Additionally, UPMC Hamot is a major participating training site for visiting colon-rectal fellows and ENT, ophthalmology, and podiatry residents.

The programs are progressive, individualized, and are precepted by experienced and dedicated practitioners who are experts in their fields. Each program is designed to ensure competence, build confidence, and foster independence.

UPMC Hamot’s residents and fellows also benefit from the hospital's state-of-the-art facilities and resources. UPMC Hamot regularly invests in new technology — providing the community with access to high quality care right here in Erie and giving UPMC Hamot residents opportunities to train with advanced technology. As a Level II trauma center and the only provider of trauma services in the region, our residents also have access to more high acuity cases in their area of specialization.

UPMC Hamot's commitment to providing superior patient care and focus on patient safety and quality initiatives has repeatedly gained national attention. The Medical Center is well-respected and trusted by the community and consistently receives the National Research Corporation's Consumer Choice Award. UPMC Hamot has been repeatedly recognized as a Top 50 Hospital by U.S. News and World Report, as well as a 100 Top Hospital by Thomson (formally known as Solucient), and one of the 100 Best Places to Work in PA. These recognitions are a testament to the quality of care we strive for at UPMC Hamot everyday and we invite you to become a part of it during your residency or fellowship training.
