"Likes" about UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh is an amazing city to live in! I fell in love with this city when I was at the University of Pittsburgh for college. The program here had an awesome opportunity for me with their combined Pediatric and Anesthesia residency. I was really impressed with the people I met here as well as the leadership in both the Pediatric and Anesthesia departments. So overall UPMC was the perfect place for me: an excellent children's hospital in a premier healthcare system in a city I love!
