International Services at Allegheny General Hospital

 Our mission — to learn, teach, heal the sick and conserve health — has provided the foundation for our endeavors since the Allegheny General's inception, and it will continue to serve as our guiding force as we move forward into the next millennium.

We are committed to expanding this mission to the international community by providing outstanding service to international patients, physicians and healthcare organizations in the consultation and treatment of patients with challenging medical problems and in the cultivation of relationships that support collaborative educational enrichment and research on health issues of shared interest.

Patient services

At Allegheny General Hospital, we realize that receiving quality healthcare is important, especially when you are far from home. With a variety of medical and surgical specialties and access to skilled, experienced physicians, Allegheny General Hospital is committed to meeting your needs in a way that is convenient, affordable and comfortable for you.

Education for physicians

Allegheny International Services collaborates with internationally based providers of health care to cultivate relationships that support educational enrichment in areas of shared interest. Allegheny General has an established physician exchange program whose participants come from countries all over the world to take part in educational and research training programs.

Internationally trained physicians are invited to participate in all continuing medical education activities  in the various specialty areas. Visiting international physicians who participate in special education and research programs, as well as formal residencies and fellowships, are eligible for membership in the International Medical Faculty of Allegheny General. An affiliation status with Allegheny General begins upon the return to their home country after the completion of a program sponsored by AGH.
