An Interesting Fact About YourselfI have 35 first cousins.

More About Me: I grew up in Pittsburgh and went to medical school here. I loved the camaraderie I saw in the residents at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, and I knew I wanted a residency program that supported this. I also knew that Pittsburgh had a great mix of museums, entertainment, and lots of delicious restaurants. And I knew being in a 5-year program that I wanted to have the option to buy rather than rent, which I have been able to do since Pittsburgh's housing is very affordable!
