Are you in a special track or focus during your residency?
No specific track at this moment, but I would like to continue to learn sports medicine.
Why did you choose UPMC Shadyside FMR program? Why Pittsburgh?
I chose UPMC Shadyside because as a medical student, the residents and attendings were so welcoming and friendly. The program emphasizes teaching and the underserved which is very important to me. I’ve grown up in Pittsburgh and it is a very lively and fun city with endless restaurants and activities. Go Steelers!
What are your goals while here in the residency program? How will this prepare you to be an excellent physician?
My goals in residency are to grow as a well-rounded and caring physician by learning from my peers, attendings, and patients. I want to continue practicing osteopathic medicine through the OMM clinic at the Family Health Center.
Do you have any special interests outside of the residency program?
My special interests outside of residency include learning to bake, cheering on the local sports teams and exploring Pittsburgh on my time off.
