Welcome from the Program Director

Thank you for your interest in the Prisma Health Med-Peds residency training program. I am a 2014 graduate of this residency program and have been involved in the program as a faculty member since 2016. I could not be happier to be a part of this fantastic program. I can confidently say that our program has all the essential elements for a truly outstanding Med-Peds residency training experience.

Our residents participate fully in two excellent categorical programs and have their own well-established and unique identity as Med-Peds physicians. In addition, our residents are very fortunate to learn in a state-of-the-art facility with fantastic teaching faculty in both departments.

Additionally, our health system has recently opened the doors to one of the newest four-year allopathic medical schools in the United States, The University of South Carolina School of Medicine, Greenville. This new medical school provides many opportunities for our residents to teach medical students in various settings and fosters an even stronger academic environment for our already exceptional clinical and teaching programs.


My primary aim as program director is to provide a balanced and comprehensive Med-Peds educational experience that will lead to a wide variety of rewarding career opportunities for our residents. I am very committed to mentorship and career development for my Med-Peds residents. I am confident that Med-Peds residents graduating from our program will have a full range of career opportunities available to them. Additionally, our program focuses on providing Med-Peds specific educational activities such as weekly Med-Peds noon conferences, journal clubs, and workshops.

We are also fortunate to have over 40 Med-Peds trained faculty within Prisma Health, including hospitalists, primary care physicians, and specialists who are actively involved in the education and mentorship of our residents.

If you are considering a career in Med-Peds, I encourage you to take a look at our program. Greenville, SC is a wonderful place to live and work. The greater metropolitan area of Greenville and its surrounding suburbs have a population of over 900,000 people, and the ten-county Upstate region of South Carolina tops 1.4 million. Our city has been featured in Forbes, Conde-Nast, and Travel + Leisure as one of the top places in the world to visit! You may be surprised by all that Greenville has to offer.

Thank you for your interest,
