Likes About UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh: I first became interested in pursuing a fellowship at the UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh because of the amazing medical techniques being used and high quality research being conducted. When I arrived for my interview the first thing I noticed was how kind and inviting the people were that work here. The environment created by the employees here makes UPMC a great place to complete your training. I’m also really enjoying living in Pittsburgh!
