Student Shadowing

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, UPP-EM observation (shadowing) programs have been suspended until we have more clarity about the situation. 

Thanks for your understanding.


Students have the opportunity to observe our faculty during an emergency medicine shift.  Shifts are 4 hours in length, and can take place at any of our four main hospital sites - UPMC Presbyterian, UPMC Mercy, UPMC Shadyside, and Magee Women's Hospital of UPMC.  There are paperwork and orientation requirements that must be met prior to shadowing. 

Please contact Janna Nelson at for more information.
