Why I chose Greenville: Greenville Health System/Prisma Health instantly clicked with me for several reasons.  I spent summers with my grandparents in Eastern Tennessee and visited Clemson during holidays to see family, so I had fallen in love with the area from a young age.  In addition, the hospitality of the residents was phenomenal!   I was running late due to bad weather so they sent me a list of the menu options and subsequently ordered for me so that I would not have to wait for my food.  The culture of the team was incredibly collegial and welcoming throughout the interview process.   The hospital has an amazing scope of services and diversity of patient presentations providing a well-rounded training environment.  Last but not least, Greenville is a beautiful, safe city to raise my daughter in during my training.   I could not think of a more complete preliminary Internal Medicine program.
