Undergraduate Medical Education

Undergraduate Medical Education

 

The teaching hospitals of Allegheny Health Network (AHN) - Allegheny General Hospital and West Penn Hospital in Pittsburgh, Forbes Hospital in the Pittsburgh suburb of Monroeville, and Saint Vincent Hospital in Erie, Pa. - have a long history of excellence in medical education.

Read more about our accredited and well-recognized programs for undergraduate medical education in the Erie and Pittsburgh, Pa., regions.

 

LECOM Clinical Site in Erie, Pa.

Saint Vincent Hospital in Erie, Pa., has long served as a clinical site for students of the  Erie-based Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM).  Under Saint Vincent Hospital's long-standing clinical education teaching agreement with LECOM, each year many third- and fourth-year LECOM osteopathic medical students choose numerous clinical rotations at Saint Vincent Hospital, Erie’s first hospital and the latest hospital to join Allegheny Health Network.

LECOM is the nation's largest medical college and with Millcreek Community Hospital and the Clinical Practices of LECOM forms the only osteopathic Academic Health Center in the United States. LECOM is at the core of this highly innovative medical education system and strives to add to the quality of life of our neighbors by bringing total health care to the community. LECOM is preparing the next generation of physicians, dentists and pharmacists at campuses in Erie and Greensburg, Pa., and in Bradenton, Fla.
