Why did you choose UPMC residency program?
Growing up in the Pittsburgh area, I was well aware of UPMC's reputation for providing the best medical care. After rotating through the PM&R department as a medical student, this notion became even clearer and I knew instantly that I wanted to become part of the rehab family. I was extremely fortunate to have a residency program with a great reputation so close to home that I know will provide me with the training and experience to thrive in the future.
