Likes About UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh: I've always wanted to pursue a career in medicine centered around advocacy and community health. I studied public health as an undergraduate student at Tulane University and participated in a variety of community outreach and advocacy programs as a medical student as Tulane as well. My residency program at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh gave me the opportunity to continue to focus on advocacy as a member of their Community-Oriented Resident Education program. I was looking for a fellowship program that would nurture my passion for advocacy while equipping me with the tools necessary to be a forward-thinking and thoughtful leader in the field of adolescent medicine. This is exactly what I found in the Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine at Children's. As a fellow here, I am lucky to have a generous amount of protected time to complete my Masters in Clinic Research and pursue my own research interests. I also get great clinical training in a variety of settings—from clinics at our academic center to providing medical services to residents in juvenile detention and homeless youth. I'm particularly excited about participating in Physicians for Reproductive Rights' training fellowship this year, where I will learn to develop skills and attributes necessary to be an effective advocate for comprehensive and sexual reproductive health care.
