WHAT YOU’RE DOING NOW

I am a practicing general internist and health services researcher, with an appointment as an Assistant Professor of Medicine within the Division of General Internal Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. My primary research interests are in the use of low value health services and how the receipt of care within multiple healthcare systems influences health service utilization, outcomes, and value. I am currently supported by an institutional career development award as part of Clinical and Translational Science Scholars Program, offered through the University’s Institute for Clinical Research Education.

REFLECTIONS ON YOUR TRAINING

During my residency at Pitt, it became apparent that the culture of the General Internal Medicine Division is one in which fellows and faculty are held to high standards, but provided with the high quality mentorship and resources necessary to succeed. I really felt that this was the perfect recipe for my success, and while I was a fellow, the division only exceeded my expectations. Through my mentored research and the coursework I pursued as part of my Master’s degree, I gained the necessary experience and skills to succeed as a clinician investigator and ultimately obtain extramural funding for my research. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who’s interested in gaining the necessary practical research skills and cultivating a network of mentors and collaborators who will put you on a trajectory to early career success.

WHY PITTSBURGH?

While I didn’t grow up in Pittsburgh, I’ve always felt at home in this city and now consider myself a “Pittsburgher” by choice. The city is constantly evolving, yet it retains its connection and sense of pride to its working class roots. The food, arts, and sports scenes are fantastic, and living within the city is very affordable - exactly the type of place in which I believe it’s ideal to live and raise a family.
