Information for Medical Students
As an academic medical center and teaching hospital, UPMC McKeesport has been committed to the education of physicians and to serving our community. One component of that commitment is the UPMC McKeesport’s involvement in the clinical education of medical students.
UPMC McKeesport provides ample opportunities for core medical student rotations in our affiliated medical schools, in addition elective clerkships are available to medical students from medical schools accredited either by the Liaison Committee for Medical Education (LCME) or the American Osteopathic Association. Pennsylvania law prohibits clinical clerkships by students from other medical schools.
Medical students are offered:
- Feedback from faculty during the course of all rotations
- Medical students participate in all residency didactic sessions and bedside teaching rounds
- Housing for those students living outside of a 35-mile radius
- Meal tickets
- Free parking
We do not offer observerships, exterships, or research assistant positions in our program.
Available Internal Medicine Rotations:
- General Internal Medicine (2 teams)
- Critical Care (CCU/ICU)
