Third Year Resident

Education:

Interests:
Are you in a special track or focus during your residency?
I have interests in women’s health and mental health.

Why did you choose UPMC Shadyside Family Medicine ResidencyProgram? Why Pittsburgh?
I chose UPMC because of its strong academic reputation. I like that the family medicine program has a well-rounded curriculum, with emphasis on teaching and a good balance between inpatient and outpatient training. I also liked the camaraderie among residents as well as with the faculty. I ended my interview day with a good feeling about the program.
I like Pittsburgh because it has a community feel despite being a major city rich in history and culture. I also like that it is driving distance to other states in the east coast where I have relatives.

What are your goals while here in the residency program? How will this prepare you to be an excellent physician?
My goal is to absorb as much as I can during residency. I plan to be a family physician serving a community where I could have long term relationships with patients. I believe that UPMC can provide me with the necessary skills and knowledge to become a versatile physician capable of managing a wide variety of patients.

Do you have any special interests outside of the residency program?
I like spending time with family, especially exploring different places and trying new things with them. I like all sorts of arts and crafts, movies, and experimenting with recipes that are new to me. I am a big fan of the TV series the Walking Dead.
