Why I chose Greenville:  When interviewing at Greenville Memorial Hospital, the thing that immediately stood out to me was how happy and sociable the residents were.  The faculty and staff were friendly, down to earth, and seemed very interested and invested in the education of their residents. The moderate-sized program allows a close-knit and collegial environment, while the hospital provides large exposure to a diverse patient population and a wide variety of pathology.  Greenville has everything you could want or need without the hassle of a larger city.  There’s a great downtown area, it’s very outdoor-oriented, and is close to Asheville, Atlanta and Charlotte.  I chose Greenville because of the exceptional training and the people.  I am excited to get started with my internal medicine residency!
