Tomorrow's Leaders in Medicine & Research
"At the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, we want applicants who will make exceptional doctors. We try very hard to achieve a class that is diverse in regard to academic, socioeconomic, experiential, and ethnic background. Since our curriculum includes considerable time spent in small-group learning, we look for students interested in collegial relationships with peers and faculty. Lastly, we want our students to enjoy a full, rich life while they are here at medical school, so we are attracted to candidates who have a variety of interests in addition to medicine."
-Beth Piraino, Associate Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid
