Why did you choose UPMC residency program?
PM&R offers enormous breadth of pathology and clinical focus. I particularly enjoy the chance to work with athletes and treat the various injuries that sports and exercise can bring about. What is even more exciting to me is the potential that this field has in the realm of tissue regeneration and functional rehabilitation. UPMC was the obvious choice for me in terms of the strength of its clinical training and well known reputation for leadership in research.
