Why did you choose UPMC residency program?
I was drawn to the PM&R specialty because of the focus on patient function and quality of life, as well as helping patients return to their baseline quality of life following major medical events. The amazing resources and faculty at UPMC whom I am happy to work with and learn from throughout residency is what drew me to the UPMC PM&R program.
