Strength of UPMC

Altoona Regional Health System merged with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) in 2013, and Altoona Family Physicians is now part of the award-winning UPMC Graduate Medical Education (GME) program.  With over 150 accredited programs in 23 specialties and 1,900 residents and fellows, UPMC GME is the nation’s fourth-largest sponsor of residency and fellowship education. 

UPMC GME emphasizes diversity and inclusion, professional development, and resident and fellow wellbeing.  Being a part of a healthcare system spanning across Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New York allows our residents the opportunity to participate in a vast array of electives at a variety of hospital types.  Altoona Family Physicians is one of only two unopposed family medicine residencies within the UPMC system with no plans to add other residencies at UPMC Altoona.
