At UPMC, we are committed to keeping our communities safe and healthy as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve. As our recruiters work to fill positions during this time, interviews and recruitment-related processes have been modified to protect and prioritize the safety of our candidates and employees.

UPMC continues to comply with any governmental guidance related to local, state, and federal COVID-19 vaccination and testing requirements where our team members live and work. UPMC strongly supports vaccination and encourages everyone who can get vaccinated to do so to protect themselves, their co-workers, and our patients. At this time, the COVID-19 vaccination is available for new or existing employees on a voluntary basis, except where required by local, state, or federal authorities. Staff in positions in our New York, Maryland, and City of Philadelphia areas must be in compliance with local COVID-19 mandates.
