About the Program

Welcome to Prisma Health Family Medicine Residency Program, Greenville and thank you for taking time to visit our website. Our program is a three-year ACGME accredited program established in 1971 and located in Greenville, South Carolina. We have successfully trained 348 residents and have a long tradition of educational excellence supporting primary care in not only the upstate, but throughout South Carolina.

 Our program is a 6-6-6 resident compliment and we work collaboratively with the other residency and fellowship programs at Greenville Memorial hospital which is our primary teaching campus. We take pride in the excellent relationships we have fostered with our colleagues from other specialties and we benefit from shared learning opportunities with the other medical specialties within our robust teaching environment.

Our outpatient clinic is located across the street from the hospital and shares the campus with our medical school, the University of South Carolina School of Medicine-Greenville. Most of our graduates enter community outpatient practices, but we have also placed several graduates into primary care sports medicine fellowships and more recently into academic family medicine positions.

We are committed to the mission of improving health for patients within the Upstate of South Carolina and beyond. We welcome applicants who are passionate about community engagement, providing care that is high quality, high-value, and equitable for all patients.
