What Makes Training at UPMC Horizon Special

Individualized Training Opportunities

We recognize each resident is unique and our small size allows us to tailor your residency experience to meet your unique practice goals through our many elective opportunities. A strong advisor system provides residents with ongoing feedback and support to assist residents in personal goals including preparing for fellowships. Though small, we have access to the wealth of opportunities provided through our over 20-year partnership with UPMC. We are committed to preparing each resident for the broad challenges of medicine and surgery as evidenced by our 100% board certification pass rate.

Emphasis on Family Medicine

At UPMC Horizon, the family physician is recognized as being at the very center of a community’s health care. Our program is active in the community through health fairs, cancer screenings, wellness training, school presentations, and school health. The medical staff, administration, and patients highly value the medical care provided by the residents. Residents are provided increasing levels of responsibility to match their experience and ability. In the office and the community, YOU are your patients’ PCP.

Emphasis on General Surgery

Emphasis on General Surgery UPMC Horizon’s well-established general surgery residency program offers a unique training experience thanks to its broad range of cases and its one-on-one precepting by enthusiastic faculty representing various surgical specialties. There are no fellows to compete for cases or dilute the teaching experience from faculty. Our program’s success can be measured by our 100% board certification success rate and how consistently our residents secure fellowships of their choice.

Friendly, Supportive Atmosphere

UPMC Horizon is an incredibly supportive place to work and learn. Resident wellness is a strong emphasis of our program. Residents and faculty gather together outside of work for fun, food, and fellowship including picnics, hiking, supper clubs, and holiday parties. We not only care about you, we care about your family, and families are always invited to our gatherings.
