Categorical Programs

Our Med-Peds residents are fortunate to work with two excellent and well-balanced categorical programs. Graduates from each program routinely secure competitive fellowship and hospitalist opportunities. Our Med-Peds residents feel fully integrated into each categorical program while maintaining their own unique identity.

Our busy Children’s Hospital Service is housed in the same building as our internal medicine wards, which greatly simplifies the Med-Peds residents’ experience. Please follow the links below to learn more about our categorical programs, USC School of Medicine Greenville and other Prisma Health locations.
