PL-4 Medicine-Pediatrics Resident

Hometown: Cincinnati, Ohio

College/Medical School: University of Cincinnati (undergrad and medical school)

Hobbies/Interests: Cooking, reading, running, spending time with family and friends and exploring Pittsburgh.

Travels/Languages: Mostly just Europe − studied abroad in Newcastle, England and during that time and on other trips, I've had the opportunity to travel around England, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, Austria, and Germany. I definitely plan to go back and visit more. No current foreign language proficiency, though.

Likes About Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC: Everyone is so friendly − as colleagues, offering to help and as peers, planning social activities. It's also a great place to train, with a focus on learning both in lecture and hands-on. There seems to be a strong support system for residents without compromising the excellent patient care.
