Lori Stiefel, MD

  • Medical Director, UPMC Shadyside Family Health Center
  • Associate Director, Family Medicine Residency Program

Dr. Stiefel is the Medical Director for UPMC Shadyside Family Health Center and Associate Director for the UPMC Shadyside Family Medicine Residency Program. A board-certified family physician, she joined a private practice in Pittsburgh after completing her Family Medicine Residency in 1993. She provided outpatient, inpatient, and nursing home care for two and one-half years in this setting.

In 1996, her interest in medically underserved populations as well as working with and learning about other cultures led her to the Indian Health Service in Shiprock, New Mexico, where she worked with the Navajo people. Dr. Stiefel practiced full-spectrum family medicine including obstetrics, sports medicine, emergency, and intensive care medicine for over five years at the Northern Navajo Medical Center. She was chair of the family medicine department for three of those years.

Dr. Stiefel joined the faculty in 2001 as the maternity care coordinator, where she could continue to practice full-spectrum family medicine and pursue her interest in teaching. In July 2005, she became the residency co-director along with Dr. N. Randall Kolb, and then transitioned to the associate program director in 2007.   From November 2004 until January 2019, when she took on the added responsibilities of Medical Director, she actively participated in the Family Medicine Department at Magee-Women's Hospital of UPMC and was integrally involved in the family medicine OB rotation.

Dr. Stiefel's personal interests include hiking, spending time with family, reading, and watching The Ohio State University and Pittsburgh Steelers football.
