Are you in a special track or focus during your residency?
My focus is precision medicine and how to incorporate innovative care and genetics into everyday primary care. I am also on the Osteopathic Recognition track.
Why did you choose UPMC Shadyside Family Medicine Residency Program? Why Pittsburgh?
I was looking for a program that was willing to think “outside the box,” and support residents with unique interests like mine, advancing the integration of genetics and primary care. UPMC Shadyside immediately had a solution for me, and the program went above and beyond to provide opportunities for me to develop my focus. Pittsburgh is an incredibly diverse city in both ethnicities and ideas, and I’m excited to take advantage of all its possibilities.
What are your goals while here in the residency program? How will this prepare you to be an excellent physician?
I want to be confident and competent in as many aspects of primary care as possible, including OMT. Solidifying these skills will be essential for me to explore new fields of primary care such as precision medicine.
Do you have any specials interests outside of the residency?
I love anything food-related including cooking and baking, I like to run, play all kinds of games, listen to music, and spend time with my co-residents. I love being a part of my resident family!
