Project Description

Brodie Parent, MD MS

Biography

Brodie completed undergraduate at Georgetown University, medical school at University of Pittsburgh, and general surgery residency at the University of Washington. While in general surgery residency, he received a NIH-T32 research fellowship and completed studies in metabolomics, nutrition, physician communication, and abdominal wall reconstruction. During this time, he also completed a Masters in Epidemiology, with a focus on clinical trial design. In 2018, he returned to Pittsburgh with his wife, Faith, and his 2-year-old daughter, Miriam.

Why Pitt?

My main reasons for choosing Pitt Plastic Surgery are the breadth and depth of clinical training, unique research opportunities (including working with leaders in adipose-derived stem cells), and long history of training plastic surgery leaders.

Despite being a large program and an academic and clinical power, Pitt Plastic Surgery has managed to maintain the family feel of a small program leading to a high level of collegiality and support. Furthermore, the breadth of clinical and research opportunities makes it very easy to pursue whatever interest you may have.
