Observership Programs

Allegheny International Observership Program

Allegheny General Hospital and West Penn Hospital in Pittsburgh host observers from around the world through the Allegheny International Observership Program. This program was designed to create meaningful learning opportunities tailored to the specific academic needs of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, medical students, physiotherapists, technologists, technicians and health care administrators. An Allegheny International Observership is a specific exchange program in which the observer accompanies members of the medical staff through their daily hospital routine, sharing experiences with doctors, residents, staff and students.

Applicants for the Allegheny International Observership Program may select a 4 week or 8 week period. The duties of the participant include the observation of the clinical care of patients, as appropriate, as well as participation in lectures, grand rounds and other related events. Observers receive no privileges to participate in the clinical treatment of patients, assist in any medical procedures, tests or surgeries, nor do they receive academic credit. Their role is specifically defined as observer.
