Why Choose UPMC for Telepsychiatry?

Managing more than 12,000 encounters a year, the Telepsychiatry Program is the largest volume service within UPMC's telehealth network.

Our providers have access to all the most up-to-date research thanks to our affiliation with the University of Pittsburgh. Many psychiatrists in our program are a part of the faculty at the Pitt School of Medicine.

Within UPMC, our team:

  • Constantly seeks out new treatments.
  • Conducts research studies.

All of this, along with the top-quality patient care we hold paramount.
