For example, UPMC helped to advance knowledge for COVID-19 care, studying various treatments and worked with the federal government to make treatments more accessible. Through 2021, more than 20,000 monoclonal antibody infusion treatments were administered.

Training the Next Generation of Clinicians

Great careers in health care start with great educations. In the face of staffing shortages and a tight talent market, UPMC is a leader in funding education for health professionals in Pennsylvania. In 2021, we invested $226 million to develop physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care providers.
