An Interesting Fact About Yourself: I completed a half ironman in my 4th year of medical school and hope to participate in a full ironman sometime in the next 5 years!

Why Did You Choose UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh: Children's has everything: good patient volume, an amazing focus on graduate medical education, state of the art research facilities, research/fellowship opportunities, experienced mentors, and the most supportive community (both inside and outside the hospital) that anyone could hope for. Plus, Pittsburgh is an incredible city to live in!
