Medical School: Alabama College of Osteo Medicine

Why I Chose Greenville: Out of all my interviews, this program had the most transparent, clearly happy residents. During my conversations with them, I noticed that they carried themselves proudly as a Prisma Health resident. Every medical student knows that residency will be demanding. However, after seeing the Prisma residents walk down the halls of the hospital with smiles on their faces, despite knowing their current hardships, speaks volumes about the program.

I have intentions of pursuing a hematology/oncology fellowship, and I know that this program will help me be prepared to the best of my ability. After meeting the residents and seeing their work ethic and interactions between faculty and staff, I know that this program will not only prepare me for my future as a physician, but also help me develop as a person.
