Why I Chose the University of Pittsburgh

I attended the University of Pittsburgh for medical school. I initially considered going elsewhere for residency and so I interviewed widely, but as it turns out there is nowhere that could compare to the breadth and depth of experience we get here. Additionally, the attendings in the department of surgery here are extremely talented, participate in cutting edge research and clinical work, and manage to be available and down to earth as well; I'm constantly impressed how vested these busy and successul people are in resident education.

Non-Academic Accomplishments

Other careers prior to medical school: firefighter, preschool teacher, black and white film photographer
