Alumni

Several transfers and mergers over the years have resulted in the current UPMC Podiatric Residency Program. Following the closure of St. Francis Central Hospital in August, 2000, the St. Francis Central Podiatric Residency Program transferred to UPMC South Side. 

In January 2008, Mercy Hospital of Pittsburgh merged with UPMC and became UPMC Mercy. In July 2009, the UPMC Mercy and UPMC South Side Podiatric Residency Programs merged following the merger of UPMC Mercy and UPMC South Side.
