Why I chose UPMC: I went to medical school at the University of Pittsburgh and became familiar with the Division of Vascular Surgery and the residency program early on. I saw how great the program was first-hand, how well-trained the residents were, and how hard they worked. I also saw how well the trainees worked together and how close they were to each other. When it came time to apply to residency, I explored other places, but didn't find anywhere that matched my home: Pittsburgh!

Why I chose UPMC: I chose to train at UPMC because of the numerous, highly experienced, and internationally renowned faculty who treat a large volume of complex vascular disease. The exposure to large volumes of both open and endovascular surgery in a robust tertiary referral center setting made UPMC my first choice.
