U.S. News Ranks WPIC in Top 10

WPIC Ranked in the Top 10 Nationally
for Psychiatric Care and Residency Training


U.S. News & World Report has listed Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of UPMC (WPIC) as one of the Top 10 hospitals in the country in terms of the quality of its clinical services and of its psychiatric residency training program.

In its most recent Best Hospitals Honor Roll, U.S. News & World Report ranked WPIC among the Top 10 psychiatry programs in the country on multiple measures.  WPIC earned its rating as one of the top psychiatric service providers in the country based on its commitment to providing the highest quality of psychiatric specialty services to patients and their families. 

U.S. News & World Report partnered with the Doximity physician network to conduct the first-ever comprehensive national evaluation of residency programs.  The WPIC Psychiatry Residency Training Program ranked #7 in the U.S. based on specialist nominations, and #5 in the U.S. among psychiatry residency programs offering research training.  Of note, the residency program was ranked #2 by psychiatry residency program directors participating in the poll, and achieved a rating of #1 in the percentage of alumni who pursued specialty training in Psychiatry.  The poll addresses a recent call by the Institute of Medicine and the Association of Health Care Journalists for more transparency into the performance of these training programs.

WPIC and the University of Pittsburgh Department of Psychiatry are proud of this acknowledgement of the quality care provided by dedicated faculty, staff and trainees, and of the numerous educational and research initiatives that contribute to the development of new and more effective diagnostic and treatment practices.
