Third Year Resident

Interests:
Are you in a special track or focus during your residency?
Not formally, although I intend to develop a clinical and community-involved approach to medical practice that pushes the boundaries of what is possible in the primary prevention and management of illness.

Why did you choose UPMC Shadyside Family Medicine Residency Program? Why Pittsburgh?
UPMC Shadyside is a good fit for me with its proximity to extensive academic medicine, community health approach and continued progress in fulfilling the needs of the catchment area it serves. My initial conversation with a friend about Pittsburgh included hearing that it was a livable city with good people and a variety of ways to occupy one's free time that was also not far removed from suburban and rural activities. Then my visit here reinforced these attributes and has motivated me to be an adopted Pittsburgher beginning on Day 1 of residency.

What are your goals while here in the residency program? How will this prepare you to be an excellent physician?
My primary goal during residency is to become the most dependable physician I can be who has set himself up for a lifetime of academic rigor in service of patients. I plan to accomplish this by challenging myself and others to excel as accountable team members while always remembering that our roles exist based on the needs and desires of others.

Do you have any special interests outside of the residency program?
In my free time I enjoy singing for enjoyment, reading non-fiction that helps me understand the people of this world and finding ways to help others achieve their goals all while pursuing ideals of health, humanity and faith.
