Clinical Clerkships at UPMC Mercy

As a major academic medical center and teaching hospital, UPMC Mercy has been committed to the education of physicians for 160 years. One component of that commitment is Mercy's involvement in the clinical education of medical students.

In addition to the core rotations offered to students in our affiliated medical schools, elective clerkships are available to medical students from all medical schools accredited either by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) or the American Osteopathic Association. Pennsylvania law prohibits clinical clerkships by students from unaccredited medical schools.
