Why Pitt?

After spending a month at Pitt as a rotating medical student, I was struck by the sense of community and mentorship within the Pitt Plastic Surgery family. The faculty at Pitt are nationally (and internationally) recognized in their fields of expertise, yet are incredibly approachable and supportive of residents’ varied interests. In addition, Pitt has a rich history of producing leaders in plastic surgery and is committed to innovation- in both patient care and resident education.
