Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science (PIMS) is a medical services technical school based in the East Liberty neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. When first established in 1939, the new training institute was known as the Pittsburgh School of Embalming. PIMS has been providing training for students entering funeral service for nearly seventy years, aiming "to prepare students for the many challenges they will encounter as funeral service professionals. The diversified curriculum continually evolves to address the changing needs and expectations associated with contemporary funeral services."
PIMS provides associate degrees and certificates as a private, two-year institution. Students who have a certain number of credits prior to enrolling at PIMS can earn the main associate's degree in funeral services online.
