    All PGY1, PGY2 and PGY3 residents will participate in a Longitudinal Outpatient Practice Improvement Rotation (LOPIR) for the entire three years of their residency. Residents are divided into one of four workgroups, focused on improviding the quality of care for a given sphere of outpatient primary care provided at the Family Health Center. Residents learn through work in multidisciplinary teams, individualized work with faculty, preparation and presentation of own projects, conduct peer evaluations and ultimately, present the teams' work in the form of a senior project.

    For those who wish to further their training beyond the three-year curriculum, UPMC Shadyside offers fellowship opportunities in Primary Care Sports Medicine, administered by our residency program; Faculty Development Fellowship, administered jointly through UPMC St. Margaret's and UPMC Shadyside's residency programs, and Geriatrics, administered through the Division of Internal Medicine. Both programs are based at UPMC Shadyside and administered on-site. Further information can be obtained through the Family Medicine Residency Program.
