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 it is the program that most matched my personal and professional goals. Shadyside FMR is a strong knowledge based program. What I love most about the program is the tradition of academic excellence of imparting quality education through interactive sessions and a firm commitment to mentoring residents to achieve excellence in their chosen specialties. With the structured and didactic educational environment, the program is intended to bring out the best in professionalism from residents. I also like the program's focus on holistic care, alternate therapies, in-patient and out-patient procedures.

I chose Pittsburgh, because it is a vibrant city with Cosmopolitan culture. Moreover I have my family and friends here and it is always nice to be close to them.

What are your goals while here in the residency program? How will this prepare you to be an excellent physician?
My short term goals are to develop knowledge on the health care delivery system in the US and to gain competency in family practice management and patient care.

My long term goals are to have the ability to provide comprehensive end to end patient care, work as an expert and consultant in a team environment, focus on prevention, chronic disease management and acute care. I would also like to expand the frontiers of knowledge through research and publications. My value system aligns to the program ideals and I am confident that the program is designed in such a way that it will provide me with many sound opportunities to shape me to become an excellent physician.

Do you have any special interests outside of the residency program?
Outside the program, my personal interests include International travel, physical fitness and meditation. I like to spend quality time with my friends and family. I also enjoy cooking, listening to classical music, taking long walks and watching films that are a blend of art, reality and human emotion.
