CURRICULUM FOCUS
University of Pittsburgh-Pittsburgh Campus Education and Liberal Arts Program
UDC Contributor

The University of Pittsburgh’s School of Education not only trains great teachers but also gives these instructors maximum support to become knowledgeable administrators, governmental leaders, and educational researchers. The school has five departments: administrative and policy studies, health and physical activity, instruction and learning, learning sciences and policy, and psychology in education. Students have the opportunity to work with the university’s Center for Urban Education, a national leader in research and practice dedicated to improving public schools in Pittsburgh and other regions with diverse student populations. The university also operates the interdisciplinary Center for Motivation in Learning and Education and a K-8 campus laboratory school. About 200 students are enrolled at the undergraduate level and more than 900 at the graduate. In addition to traditional studies, Pitt is committed to helping working professionals pursue degrees by offering select part-time and online graduate programs.

CURRICULUM FOCUS
University of Pittsburgh-Pittsburgh Campus Healthcare Program
UDC Contributor

Two concerns reign supreme at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. The first is turning out physicians ready to offer top-notch care to patients. (The school regularly receives especially high rankings in the areas of drug and alcohol abuse, geriatrics, pediatrics, women’s health, and primary care). The second is educating investigators whose research will impact the future of medical science. (The campus building where Pitt faculty member Jonas Salk conducted his research on the first polio vaccine is now an historic landmark.) The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Hospitals and Facilities aids both endeavors by serving as a training and research center for students. Not to mention, it happens to receive one of the highest amounts of funding from the National Institutes of Health. In addition to studies leading to an M.D., the School of Medicine offers masters and doctoral programs through its Graduate Studies division. Select undergrads can contribute to cutting-edge research at Pitt through intensive 10-week summer programs in areas such as cell biology and immunology.

Ph.D. in Instruction and Learning, Class of 2015

U The University of Pittsburgh's School of Education has world-class faculty, staff, and students. The School’s unique setting provides urban, suburban, and rural school districts within a thirty-minute drive. These districts range in size from graduating classes of 60 to over a thousand, and just as diverse in socio-economic spectrum. This diversity in educational settings provides a unique opportunity for the faculty and students at Pitt to engage in research that addresses the complex and real-world problems facing the education community. Pitt’s wonderful teacher preparation program includes student teaching opportunities in environments that truly prepare young educators for the realities of the classroom. All told, the School of Education at the University of Pittsburgh provides a tremendous opportunity for students to lead relevant, cutting edge work.

Cynthia
Medical Degree, Class of 2015

U One of the biggest factors that pushed me to make the decision to attend the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine was the supportive environment that was evident from the day I interviewed there to the day I walked across the stage to receive my medical degree. I always felt that I could go to anyone for advice and everyone had an open door policy. I was granted so many great opportunities while at PittMed which allowed me to pursue a variety of interests, in addition to learning the foundations of medicine from world-class scientists and medical doctors. I was able to travel to Kenya to conduct research and practice medicine in an impoverished community and to take an extra year of training to explore clinical research by participating in the Clinical Scientist Training Program at PittMed. When I decided on Ob/Gyn as the specialty that I wanted to pursue, the chair of the Ob/Gyn department allowed me to meet with him on a regular basis to get advice about the process. There are many medical schools that offer great training but very few are highly ranked and have genuine people who are so invested in the success of their students in such a way as the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
