  • First Year Residents

Are you in a special track or focus during your residency?

I am in the Osteopathic Recognition Track. My interests are in Sports Medicine and non-OB Women’s Health.

Why did you choose UPMC Shadyside Family Medicine Residency Program? Why Pittsburgh?

During my fourth year of medical school, I had the opportunity to do a four-week rotation at Shadyside. I not only had a great educational experience but was able to see firsthand how welcoming the residents and faculty were. Each resident I worked with went above and beyond to help me be successful in my patient interactions. The faculty took the time to teach me and interact with me on a personal level. It was after this rotation I knew Shadyside was for me!

What are your goals while here in the residency program? How will this prepare you to be an excellent physician?

My goals are to learn and grow my skills to be the best physician I can be. I want to be my patient’s advocate, listen to them, and treat them to the best of my abilities. The various rotations and diverse population of patients will help me be a well-rounded family medicine physician.

Do you have any special interests outside of the residency?

Outside of residency and medicine, figure skating has been a large part of my life. I also enjoy hiking, kayaking and ceramic wheel throwing.
