The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine ranks among the top medical schools in the United States. The school’s innovative curriculum features intensive hands-on training through a partnership with UPMC.

This, combined with the disciplined academic focus of the university, represents one characteristic that sets our cardiothoracic surgery residency programs apart from others.
