Chief Medical Residents

Ryan Augustin, MD

Home Town: St. Paul, MN
College: University of St. Thomas
Med School: Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine
Career Plans: Academic medical oncology, translational research in melanoma, medical education

Bio
Ryan grew up in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, and attended the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul where he studied biochemistry and performed research in molecular biology. He attended medical school at Case Western Reserve where he met his wife, Trina. Ryan was immediately drawn to UPMC for several reasons: (a) the incredible depth and variety of pathology with rotations across academic, community, and veterans’ hospitals; (b) resource advantages of a top-10 NIH funded academic medical center in a smaller city environment; (c) a large, influential group of general internal medicine faculty who actively foster a culture of clinical reasoning and compassionate care. Outside of work, Ryan enjoys running, playing piano, and spending time with his family. Following his chief year, he plans to pursue a career in academic medical oncology.
Tim Bober, MD

Home Town: Canonsburg, PA
College: Penn State University
Med School: Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University
Career Plans: General Internal Medicine

Bio
Tim grew up in a small town 20 miles southwest of Pittsburgh and almost became a Victorian literary scholar before going to medical school in Philadelphia at Jefferson. Tim already knew that he loved the city of Pittsburgh for its distinctive neighborhoods, greenery, and yinzer charm. When applying to residencies, he was especially drawn to the breadth of clinical experiences, strong focus on General Internal Medicine, and med tech research opportunities at UPMC. Down the road, he is interested in the intersection of healthcare, technology, and care delivery and wants to pursue a career focused on applying innovative techniques to the primary care setting.
Clare Cene-Kush, DO

Home Town: Pittsburgh, PA
College: Vassar College
Med School: Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine
Career Plans: Pulmonary and Critical Care, Medical Education, Women’s Health

Bio
Clare is a proud native of Pittsburgh, PA. After attending college in New York, she moved to Georgia where she received a Masters in Public Health from Emory University and worked in the field of violence prevention at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. UPMC was her “dream program” because of its outstanding emphasis on general medical education, resident autonomy and mentorship – particularly from faculty members within the Women’s Health Track. When not at work she enjoys spending time with her family, eating, reading, cheering on Pittsburgh sports teams, and building Legos with her nieces. After residency she plans to pursue a career in Pulmonary and Critical Care with a focus on medical education.
Callie Drohan, MD

Home Town: Hudson, OH
College: The Ohio State University
Med School: University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
Career Plans: Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Clinician Scientist, Acute Lung Injury

Bio
Callie grew up in Hudson, Ohio. She studied biomedical science at The Ohio State University (go bucks!) and completed her MD at Pitt Medical School. Callie chose to stay at UPMC for several reasons: 1) the camaraderie among residents and faculty, 2) the outstanding opportunities for research, 3) the emphasis on becoming clinical leaders early on by having resident-led rounds, and 4) to be at the same program as her husband, who was a resident in IR. She enjoys running, playing sand volleyball, and checking out local restaurants. Following chief year, she plans to pursue a career in academic pulmonary and critical care medicine as a clinician-scientist educator.
Andrew Murphy , MD

Home Town: Plano, Texas
College: University of Texas at Austin
Med School: Baylor College of Medicine
Career Plans: Cardiology, Medical Education, Point of Care Ultrasound

Bio
Andrew grew up in a suburb outside of Dallas before attending the University of Texas for his undergraduate studies in neurobiology. He then completed his tour of Texas by going to medical school in Houston. Eager to diversify his educational experience for residency, he interviewed at UPMC and loved it for its resident-focused model of education and the emphasis on autonomy and leadership. He has a strong clinical interest in cardiology, telehealth, medical education, and point of care ultrasound, all of which he hopes to incorporate into his future career. Outside of work, he enjoys running, hiking, and camping. He is more than ready to show off his movie trivia knowledge and obsession with Spielberg films that start with “J” and end in “AWS.” At home, he loves cooking and also tries his best to make espresso with increasingly elaborate/unnecessary barista equipment.
