More About Me: I was so lucky to peruse a pediatric neurology fellowship in UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh after having practiced general pediatrics for few years. I moved from Missouri to Pittsburgh where you can find everything you are looking for. The program and faculty are so supportive, and you feel like a family. The city has many parks and indoor activities that my family enjoys all the time. The mountain view of downtown where you see the colors reflected on the rivers at night is very unique and breathtaking!!

Likes About UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh: Everybody is great and nice. Highly ranked academic program.
