About the Program

The Prisma Health Upstate Medicine-Pediatrics (Med-Peds) Program is an exciting and rewarding medical specialty. Med-Peds physicians may pursue a wide range of interesting career choices caring for patients across the age span.

The Prisma Health Upstate Med-Peds program is committed to providing our residents with the most balanced and comprehensive medical training available in a friendly, supportive learning environment.

Prisma Health is a large network of hospitals and medical offices serving the needs of 70% of patients in the Upstate of South Carolina. While the vast majority of the adult and pediatric training experiences occur under one roof at Greenville Memorial and the Children’s Hospital. Our residents are free to enroll in electives with teaching faculty throughout the health system, including with our Med-Peds hospitalist program in nearby Greer.

In 2012, The University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville opened its doors on our campus. The USC School of Medicine Greenville has further enhanced the educational mission of our hospital system and has provided increasing opportunities for teaching and mentorship for our faculty and residents.

We have been very fortunate here in Greenville to have a cohesive, supportive and hard-working group of residents who are devoted to patient care and to each other. Our med-peds residents fit seamlessly within two excellent categorical programs while still retaining their own unique identity.
