The University of Pittsburgh Department of Medicine is renowned for its cutting-edge research, strong commitment to medical education, and advanced clinical care. Our Department researchers and faculty receive more than $140 million in research funding annually, and our University is the nation’s fifth-largest university recipient of NIH funding.

The Department of Medicine’s scientists, physician-scientists, and clinicians do the advanced research that is changing people’s lives and furthering our understanding of science. The grants and training awards they receive, the papers they publish in high-impact journals, the patient therapies they discover, and the residents and fellows they teach reflect our faculty’s skill, dedication, and commitment.
