July Fellow Spotlight: Catherine Fiore, MD

Name: Catherine Fiore
Hometown: Essex Fells, NJ

In this month’s Fellow Spotlight, we feature Catherine Fiore, MD, a third-year fellow in Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine, from Essex Fells, New Jersey. We recently caught up with Dr. Fiore to learn more about her work, why she chose UMass, and more.  

What are your clinical and research interests? 
My clinical interests reside in the growing field of interventional pulmonary, the teaching of safe and effective procedures, mentorship, and medical education. 

Why did you choose UMass for your fellowship? 
I completed my internal medicine residency here. The people who work here and in the pulmonary department have always been supportive and kind. Growing and learning within the department is a joy and I have fostered mentors I hope to keep throughout my career. Also, I couldn't live in Worcester and leave after Polar Park was built!  

Where is your favorite place to travel for vacation and why? 
I enjoy exploring the national parks. During residency and fellowship, I was able to make it to The Smoky Mountains, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, and most recently Acadia. The next trip is to Glacier in the fall!  

What music or podcasts do you like to listen to?
Recently I was able to see one of my favorite bands, The Lumineers, at the Boston Calling Festival. I also spend most of my time listening to a variety of podcasts including, They Daily, Normal Gossip, and This Podcast Will Kill You, to name a few.
