Hometown: Columbia, South Carolina
Medical School: Medical University of South Carolina
Why I Chose Greenville: I chose the Internal Medicine program at Prisma Health Upstate for a multitude of reasons. Most importantly, during my interview season it was the one program that felt most like “home”. All the residents knew each other and had great relationships really giving the program a small town feel in a large academic center. On interview day, the program director emphasized the importance of family and time away from the hospital – something most of us find very important to avoid burnout. The hospital facilities and grounds are very nice and within walking distance to a state-of-the-art medical school where we will get to do simulation training as residents. Lastly, Greenville is an absolutely amazing city to live in. It is fun, it is affordable, and it’s full of opportunity!
