The University of Pittsburgh Emergency Medicine Residency was established in 1981 as a joint residency program under the sponsorship of the Mercy Hospital of Pittsburgh, Presbyterian-University Hospital (both now part of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center), and the Western Pennsylvania Hospital. For nearly 30 years, the combined resources of these institutions, with their outstanding teaching staffs and varied patient populations, have offered our residents opportunity and experience available in few other programs.
