Sarah Satter, MD

  • Third Year Resident

Are you in a special track or focus during your residency?

Why did you choose UPMC Shadyside Family Medicine Residency Program? Why Pittsburgh?
I chose UPMC Shadyside because of its reputation for academic excellence, its well-established family medicine department, and the supportive working environment. I feel that here I will have the opportunity to serve the community as well as build a solid foundation of primary care.

Pittsburgh is such a beautiful, picturesque city. I love the architecture found here as well as exploring all the different neighborhoods.

What are your goals while here in the residency program? How will this prepare you to be an excellent physician?
My goals are to become well-rounded physician who is proficient and comfortable with all aspects of primary care. I want to leave the program with the ability to comfortably practice in any working environment.
