Reflections on the Pitt EM Program

I was looking for a well-respected academic program that not only had great general EM training, but also offered lots of experience in the awesome niches within the specialty.
What are the strengths of the Pitt EM program?
Many different clinical sites that each offer a different experience, awesome faculty, and of course, the most immersive EMS experience of any residency program that I looked at.
What has surprised you most about Pitt?
The number of resources available and the size of the health system.
About Pitt EM and Pittsburgh
What do you like best about living in Pittsburgh/Western PA?
Big city amenities with suburban neighborhoods all within city limits. It really is the best of both worlds. The cost of living doesn’t hurt either!
Where did you choose to live, and why?
Shadyside. We’re on a quiet, tree-lined street that’s also just steps away from bars, restaurants, a gym, and three grocery stores.
What advice would you give to incoming residents about moving to the 'Burgh?
Look for housing early. There are great options, but they go quickly
