Likes About UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh: I love the collegial atmosphere and large catchment area for the hospital which lends itself to great case volume for training. I see so many interesting, rare cases and know that I can fully trust that I am learning evidence-based medicine from highly regarded mentors in the field. The hospital itself is also beautiful. I never thought I would end up in Pittsburgh, but my husband and I met here in medical school and we have now lived in Pittsburgh for 8+ years. We love Pittsburgh for its affordability, walkability, and large array of city amenities, parks, and things to do with a smaller, more personal city vibe. We now consider Pittsburgh home!
