Emily Sherrard, MD

I grew up in Hopewell, NJ, a small town in central New Jersey, and I attended Duke University for my undergraduate education, where I was a member of the cross country and track teams. I went to Jefferson Medical College (now called Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University) in Philadelphia, following in the footsteps of my Mother and Grandfather, who were also my inspiration to pursue Family Medicine. After graduating from medical school in 2015, I deferred residency in order to compete in triathlons at the professional level, and after two seasons of racing I decided it was time to come back to medicine. I am thrilled to be in Greenville for my residency training, and am excited to be able to witness first hand all of the innovative and progressive things that are happening in the healthcare system, and how this will impact healthcare in the upstate and beyond. Greenville has an amazing group of core faculty members in Family Medicine, who are very devoted to teaching. The are also strong Lifestyle Medicine and Sports Medicine programs, which mesh well with my interests and future career pursuits. Outside of medicine I love spending time outdoors, running, hiking, and biking. I also love food and trying new restaurants, so living in Greenville has been awesome in allowing me to explore the outdoors and find new places to eat!
