�1 Appellant, Louis Jefferson, appeals from the February 15, 2001, Order reducing his support obligation from $1150 per month to $946 per month, crediting him with $3578.70 for overpayment of child care expenses, and directing Appellee, Mercedes F. Kersey, to pay $1000 for having failed to notify the court of a change in circumstances with regard to child care expenses, as required by Pa.R.C.P. 1910.17. We affirm.

�2 The parties are the parents of a son, Malik, born out of wedlock in 1994.*fn2 They met at the University of Pittsburgh while Appellant was completing his second master’s degree. Appellant holds a bachelor’s degree in human physiology, and master’s degrees in health education and epidemiology. Appellant enrolled in the University of Pittsburgh’s medical school pre-matriculation program in the fall of 1993, but withdrew when Appellee became pregnant. At that point, Appellant accepted a United States government job paying $36,000 annually. Thereafter, Appellant earned $54,000 per year while working for Baird in Connecticut, and $70,000 per year at Pfizer, Inc., in New York City.

�3 In May of 2000, Appellant resigned from Pfizer and enrolled full-time in the pre-matriculation program of the University of Connecticut’s medical school, which he estimates will take five years to complete. He works approximately 30 hours per week as a clinical research coordinator at Scirex Corporation in Windsor, Connecticut for $32,000 per year, and currently resides in Hartford, Connecticut. Appellant also pays $760 per month support for a child from another relationship. Appellee, who resides in Pine Hill, New Jersey with Malik, is a public school teacher in Philadelphia. At the time the support action was filed, Appellee and Malik resided in Bristol, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
