Why I Chose the University of Pittsburgh

I chose Pittsburgh because I was confident that the program would give me excellent training in all facets of General Surgery. Further to that, all the residents I met attested to how supportive the program was academically, clinically as well as personally. Lastly, I truly enjoyed my interactions with the residents that I met., they were a great bunch of people and this fact still hold true now that I have gotten to spend more time with them!

Non-Academic Accomplishments

One of the best adventures I have ever had (in retrospect) also involved me nearly dying at sea! Don't worry, I am now a much stronger kayak-er!
