UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital   currently employs more than 150 psychiatrists and manages more than 400 psychiatric beds across the network. We have more than 390,000 outpatient visits a year and over $80 million in research funding. A leader in the treatment of mental health and addictive disorders, UPMC is consistently ranked among the nation’s top hospitals for psychiatry by U.S. News & World Report.

We are an integrated behavioral health system comprising clinical services, education and training, and research.   Together with the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, we provide behavioral health care that is informed by the latest research, for individuals across the life span, who are at all stages in their recovery.  Many of our sites are teaching clinics and offer multiple opportunities for training residents, medical students, and other trainees. The Department of Psychiatry offers a Clinician Educator Faculty Development Program and is also actively recruiting physicians who are interested in furthering our robust DEI initiatives including the Univeristy of Pittsburgh Race and Social Determinants of Equity and Well-being Cluster Hire and Retention Initiative.
