About Us

 Our Philosophy

Since 1973, the UPMC McKeesport Family Medicine Residency has been providing the highest standard of care to the people of the Mon Valley and surrounding areas. We utilize the latest evidence-based medicine recommendations combined with the "art" of medicine. Our humanistic, hands-on, and scientific approach to patient care has led to the continual growth of our patient base at the residents' training center. We are proud to serve three generations of families. 
The UPMC McKeesport Family Medicine Faculty is devoted to the residents' training. The competencies are the cornerstones that frame their education. Our goals for the residents are:

  • instill a desire for lifelong learning
  • develop independent decision making
  • achieve high board scores
  • attain desired fellowships
  • balance professional and personal life
  • model the highest ethical and moral standards
