Jeffrey Kandt, MD

Why did you choose UPMC residency program?
I choose UPMC because it is strong in all areas of PM&R and I was initially undecided in what areas of PM&R I wanted to focus. Their PGY-2 year offers exposure to most aspects of the field and helped me determine what I liked and what I did not. UPMC felt like a good cultural fit for me, also. I felt UPMC would provide me with all the necessary tools to be a strong physiatrist.
