    As a major academic medical center and teaching hospital, UPMC McKeesport has been committed to the education of physicians for over 100 years. One component of that commitment is UPMC McKeesport?s involvement in the clinical education of medical students.

    We are a primary-care training site for 3rd and 4th Year University of Pittsburgh and Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) medical students. In addition, to the core rotations in Family Medicine offered to students from our affiliated medical schools, elective clerkships are available to medical students from the following affiliated medical schools:

    • Kansas City University of Medicine and BioSciences (KCUMB)

    • Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (KCOM)

    • Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM)

    • Lincoln Memorial University - DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (LMU-DCOM)

    • Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM)

    • University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine (UPSOM)

    • West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine (WVSOM)

    Unfortunately, we are unable to take students on Clerkships without an affiliation agreement in place. New affiliation agreements take approximately 9-12 months.

    The Family Medicine Rotation for medical students typically consists of both inpatient and outpatient experiences, and can be tailored to individual needs. Both the UPMC McKeesport Hospital and Latterman Family Health Center utilize Electric Health Records and have WiFi available throughout.

    Family Medicine Inpatient: Medical students are immersed in the family medicine inpatient teaching service. The team consists of a family medicine attending and senior and junior residents. Each morning there is morning report, teaching rounds and follow-up on assigned patients. Daily conferences are held at the hospital, which include grand rounds, journal club, CPC?s and tumor board. The student is encouraged to attend these conferences.

    Family Medicine Outpatient: The Latterman Family Health Center (LFHC) is the Outpatient Center where residents see their continuity patients. The medical student works with residents and attendings, sees patients, and is precepted by the family medicine attendings. The Family Health Center provides a wide spectrum of services for the community including: Adult care, Women?s Health, Obstetrics, family planning, Sports Medicine, as well as Pediatrics. Students receive a well-rounded out-patient experience at the LFHC Center.

    Didactics: Wednesday afternoons at the LFHC Center are core lectures and workshops on various topics specific to primary care. OMM is monthly.

    Community Opportunities: The residency program has always maintained a strong commitment to improving the overall healthcare needs of the community. There are opportunities for students to participate in community medicine programs and visit community agencies and healthcare clinics; i.e., The 9th Street Clinic, Womansplace. Also as part of the rotation, arrangements can be made for the student to make a home visit with the family medicine attending who specializes in geriatrics.
