A Day in the Life of an FMR - Lauryn

“Throughout my two years in the program I will have the chance to rotate through four different divisions of UPMC, which will grant me exposure to the various facets of health care financing. From there, I will have a better idea of which division is the best fit for me. Additionally, the ability to understand all pieces of the increasingly complex and intertwined health care puzzle will prove beneficial throughout my career.”
