Family Medicine Residency Program

University of Pittsburgh Faculty Development Fellowship

Our Mission

We develop Family Medicine educators to become master teachers, exemplary clinicians, collaborative researchers, and effective leaders.


The University of Pittsburgh & UPMC St Margaret Faculty Development Fellowship Program is a flexible, innovative fellowship committed to training excellent teaching Family Physicians. This program is nationally recognized for individualized, superior training.

Established in 1982, UPMC St Margaret & University of Pittsburgh Faculty Development Fellowship has graduated more fellows than any other full-time program.

Fellows gain clinical and teaching experiences from three different community hospital-based residency training sites. They benefit from access to the university’s rich resources for graduate education, research, grant development, and mentoring. Fellows may obtain a Master of Public Health, Master of Science in Medical Education or Master of Science in Clinical Research. Tuition is fully funded for traditional-track fellows.

Traditional-track fellow applicants must be board-certified graduates of an approved Family Medicine Residency Program or have comparable clinical experience and an interest in part-time or full-time teaching in Family Medicine. The fellowship offers a salary and benefits that are highly competitive with similar fellowship programs.

Faculty-track fellow applicants should have an interest in part-time or full-time teaching in Family Medicine. Please see Apply Page for application requirements.



"My directors worked with me, trained me, and transferred their experience to me wholeheartedly, so I could grow with confidence in the professional path I have chosen.  I would highly recommend the fellowship to any colleague who would like to excel in medical education."
