I knew from the pre-interview dinner that this program was a great fit for me. The culture here is a great balance between academics and quality of life for the residents. Since my intern year there have been several changes to the curriculum and schedule which show that this program is very active in looking for ways to improve. The attendings are great and personable, the hospital is beautiful, and the program itself is structured in a way that I think fosters a great balance between inpatient, outpatient, and specialty medicine.

Being in Greenville was also a huge plus for me. Greenville is a special place that my family and I have decided to call our long-term home.  My son and dog love the park located downtown and my wife and I love main street for date nights.

Leaving residency is truly bitter-sweet. Of course, I am excited to start my career in outpatient internal medicine at a nearby practice; however, I am sad to leave all the great people I have met over the last 3 years. I will cherish my time at Greenville Memorial Hospital and hope the upcoming generations enjoy this ride as much as I did.
