Why Pittsburgh?
I chose Pittsburgh because it has such a great reputation for excellence in medicine. I also wanted to be somewhere that felt like a city and had a good variety of things to do and places to go. Being from Michigan, I don’t mind the occasional snowstorm.

Like About Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC

The faculty and residents are great and you couldn’t ask for better administrative staff. Everyone seems to enjoy what they do and that can be very contagious. The hospital is brand new and well-equipped to fight disease with almost any specialty you can think of.
