Prisma Health Upstate is a comprehensive academic health center designed to meet the needs of the community of the upstate of South Carolina. Our residents are taught by outstanding clinical teachers in internal medicine, pediatrics and Med-Peds. Our teaching services are run by academic generalists and hospitalists. The teaching atmosphere is very collegial and residents are granted a high degree of autonomy and responsibility. Our primary goal is to create outstanding clinicians who can thrive in any inpatient or outpatient setting immediately following graduation. Our visitors are always amazed by the friendly atmosphere here, despite our busy clinical workload. The residents can attest to its reality.
In addition, the Prisma Health administration has been incredibly supportive of Med-Peds and has created many clinical programs for Med-Peds physicians in our community. We currently have over 30 Med-Peds trained faculty members associated with Prisma Health Upstate. The University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville has also been a tremendous addition to our academic health center. Our medical students are very bright, enthusiastic and bring with them a well-developed sense of clinical medicine as a result of their unique curriculum. The USC School of Medicine Greenville also has a very active Med-Peds Student Interest Group that meets quarterly with Med-Peds residents and faculty.
