Internal Medicine Resident at UPMC - Mercy Hospital

Congratulations to Kelly Barrett for matching into an Internal Medicine residency!

Residency Match & Specialty: Internal Medicine at UPMC - Mercy Hospital 

Hometown: Sault Ste. Marie Ontario, Canada

Undergraduate School: Western University

Masters Degree: Western University 

Why Did You Choose MUA?: I chose MUA for its smaller class sizes and the ability to work 1 on 1 with my professors. After attending a large university for my undergraduate degree, I knew I learnt best in smaller group settings.

Career Goal: Currently I want to be a hospitalist. However, with my sports background, a fellowship in sports medicine is always an attractive option.

Quote About Your Match: Be yourself; everyone else is already taken. - Oscar Wilde

Daniel Shapiro started  medical school at MUA after studying molecular biology and microbiology at the University of Central Florida. Hearing about the school from a family friend,  he had never been to Nevis, but adapted easily to the island and the school. “ The island of Nevis is quite nice, as are the local people. I developed a network of friends and we came to rely on each other. The teachers were great, and they would stay after hours to help us out while also giving us review sessions before each exam. The TA sessions were particularly useful, and interacting with other students who had taken the course already was really helpful”.
