At UPMC Hamot, we provide our residents and fellows with the training and experience required to create competent, compassionate physicians and surgeons who are committed to ensuring patient safety and quality of care in everything they do.

UPMC Hamot was founded in 1881 and has a long tradition of medical education, dating back to the early 1900s.

The programs are progressive, individualized, and are precepted by experienced and dedicated practitioners who are experts in their fields. Each program is designed to ensure competence, build confidence, and foster independence.

UPMC Hamot’s residents and fellows also benefit from the hospital's state-of-the-art facilities and resources. UPMC Hamot regularly invests in new technology — providing the community with access to high quality care right here in Erie and giving UPMC Hamot residents opportunities to train with advanced technology. As a Level II trauma center and the only provider of trauma services in the region, our residents also have access to more high acuity cases in their area of specialization.
