An Interesting Fact About Yourself: Trained in playing classical violin

Why Did You Choose Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh: The first time I set foot into Children’s was during a radiology elective at UPMC as a third year medical student. I spent three days with the pediatric radiologists and instantly fell in love with the place and the people. This experience guided my decision to do my final rotations at Children’s as well. Those electives were the most inspiring, challenging, and most fun of my entire final year. Throughout interview season Pittsburgh Children’s remained my favorite place – and that’s how I ended up here.
