Pros: facility was based within close proximity to the university of pittsburgh
Cons: very crowded
UPMC, a Level 1 trauma facility with world renowned reputation, was an interesting place to work. Each day there was fast paced and filled with many interesting cases. I l gained an enormous amount experience in many different disciplines including, but not limited to, neurosurgery, endocrine and general surgeries. My co workers were very well-versed in all aspects of their respective cases. At UPMC, I learned how best to manage my time as we were always very busy. I was able to become proficient at each case I was assigned to. The hardest part of the job was probably, just having graduating from school, was to adjust to such a fast paced environment. The most enjoyable part of my time there was knowing I was part of a team doing our best to provide the best care available.
