Interests:
Are you in a special track or focus during your residency?
I am interested in Sports Medicine.

Why did you choose UPMC Shadyside Family Medicine Residency Program? Why Pittsburgh?
The programís location, education, and sports medicine presence led me to choose UPMC Shadyside. Having spent 4 years at Pitt for undergrad, I already knew I wanted to come back to the city. Its small town feel with big city atmosphere, culture, and sports presence canít be matched.

What are your goals while here in the residency program? How will this prepare you to be an excellent physician?
To become the best well-rounded physician that I possibly can. I want to be able to diagnose and treat the wide array of conditions that a family medicine doctor will encounter.

Do you have any special interests outside of the residency program?
Watching/playing sports, traveling, hiking, outdoor activities
